Abstract : During a post flight control of the F-16 the atmosphere and the temperature of the air intake and exhaust were measured. The following compounds were determined: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxide, PAH, hydrocarbons, aldehydes and dust or soot dust. PAH were found in a concentration of the TWA-value (0.2 mg/m3) in the atmosphere of the exhaust. In the air intake low concentrations of hydrocarbons were found. The other compounds were far below the TWA-value. The temperature in the exhaust decreased from 45 to 35 deg C and in the air intake from 30 to 25 deg C during a measuring period of an hour. PAH were also found in the soot dust impacted on the floor under the exhaust of the start engine. It is not expectable that the soot dust will whirl from the floor.
