Yep! Been in the trades about 25 years and ran into asbestos pipes early on.

I think it's like inspectorD says, most of those affected were working in the mines and breathing clouds of the stuff.

Good luck with your testing if you go that route.

Can you imagine all the formaldehyde from gassing off this guy will be breathing on the airplane? Imagine sitting in a sealed airplane for 5hrs with all the formaldehyde and the cleaning agents they use to clean the plane?
