We have one in the C-130 that I crew on, I hate it, I hate carrying the thing to a toilet to dump, and I think that it stinks. This is a very biased opinion though as I would rather have something with a holding tank that a truck pulls up to to dump like an airliner. Did I mention that I hate carrying it around trying to find a toilet to dump it in. By the way the people that have made the decision not to retrofit the aircraft with a airline style toilet are not the ones who have to dump it.

Now that I think about it we might not be talking about the same toilet, Oh well, I got the rant out of my system.

When I was in the USAF the first one to use the crapper can was the one that had to empty it.
Retrofit! Last I remember was $600 government toilet seats.
Looks like I just hijacked the crapper can thread SORRY.
