I though this was about cleaning the a/c units. Pity it isn't as the subject is interesting.......filthy, but interesting.

Thanks, eticket.

The lady of the house being a sculptress and her studio being cooled in summer and heated in winter by a/c, the cleaning of the filters once a year is a marvellous thing. Climb up ladder, raise cover....and duck as half a ton of fine dust pours out. Yes I know it should be done more often.

I would vastly rather clean a/c as in aircraft. But local left-overs from the Civil War are far and few between as they are regarded by one side as shameful symbols of a defeated Republican Empire, and by the other side as ...er...the same. Better not mentioned or viewed.

A/C cleaning

sounds like money laundering.

I'd be very careful...

Ah yes, patina. A tricky subject. I consider "S for Sugar" in the RAF Museum Hendon to be a bit too 'clean'. The a/c in Brooklands suited me better. But that's a very personal opinion and (for once) I'm not laying down the law.

To be allowed to clean some of those aircraft, how much will they charge me? :p

The Antoinette monoplane at the Science Museum in South Kensington, London, appears to be supporting more than its own weight in dust on the dozens of fine ribs on its uncovered wing. It would be a brave person who takes a vacuum cleaner to the delicate 105 year old structure though.
