Sep 20th 2012 1:27AM I spent 15 months in Lybia while King Idris was still ruling the country. We used to have an Air Base there, Wheelus AB on the sunny sandy shores of the Mediterannean outside the thriving metropolis of Tripoli. In summer it got hot! Once I was flown to a bomging range we staffed in the dessert. I believe the name was El Watia or something phonetically similar. (It had the only licenced Playboy Club in Africa althouth there were no women.) The day I was there it reached 124 degrees. I was told that was a normal temperature. I doubt 12 degrees makes much difference once you get that hot.
