Air felt when zooming?

Just noticed that whenever I spin the zoom ring on my nikkor 17-55, you can actually feel a little bit of air blowing out the back of the lens (obviously the lens was detached when I experienced this).

Is this normal operation? If so, has anyone noticed increased dust problems?
