I landed a C-119 in Madison one July day on the way to Alaska during our summer two-week duty. I remember the pretty lakes as we came in to the airport. As we landed, we had a kind of snowstorm in the cockpit.
The navigator had strapped a coffee maker on his table and had put a bag of sugar on top of the radio rack. A small plane taxied onto our runway about halfway down just as we touched down; to miss him it was lock the brakes and reverse the props. The bag of sugar flew into the overhead console, burst, and showered us, in our sweaty flying suits, with powdered sugar. Talk about sticky and itchy! I ended up taking a shower in my flying suit to get that stuff off of me.
