L.I. Couple Wants Answers After Lavatory Leak From Overhead Plane

MALVERNE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — One Malverne couple was enjoying the mild night Thursday when they became covered by sludge as a plane taking off from Kennedy Airport flew overhead.

“A plane was coming over. Next thing you know she says ‘Oh my God it’s raining.’ I said ‘No it’s not’,” Artie Hughes told 1010 WINS’ Sonia Rincon.

“Some black liquid, black oil came off on her face, and I walked around and I looked and said ‘Oh my God.’ There was quarter-sized, nickel-sized, dime-sized drops all over my deck, my barbecue, my table,” he said.

Thinking something was wrong with the plane, they called police.

“It was oily in substance, blackish-greenish oil. I thought it was hydraulic fluid and then the policeman came down and said ‘No I don’t think so. Looks like something nastier than that’,” Hughes said.

The officer suspected it was most likely treated sewage, returning after making several phone calls for confirmation.

“He had spoken to somebody down at either the Port Authority or the FAA and said ‘Yeah, it looks like there was an incident,” he said. “Some lavatory excrement had leaked out.”

The couple tell Rincon they just want an explanation, and for this kind of incident to not happen again.

“I think they should investigate and find out what happened,” Hughes said. “Was a button pushed? Was the lavatory filled to capacity before it left the ground?”wondered.

  • Mike

    Too bad it wasn’t dropped on an Obama rally.

  • Brigmaster

    Rule of thumb for planes and bird flying over head. “Don’t look up.”

  • George Kingfish Stevens

    That was just Morocco Bumma in AF1, sharing a little of himself with his “faithful”.

  • Jose

    Sounds like Air Force One

    • Jerzey Boy

      Dam, I so wanted to make an AF-1 comment

      • David Moore

        If it was AF-! the MSM would either not cover it or make an excuse
        the the big pooper!

    • DeusVult

      LOL!…NO that only happens when “resident”(thats NOT a typo!) obama opens his mouth and spews material for “truely” shovel-READY jobs!

    • Bob G.

      Couldn’t be air force one. All the crap is contained in the individuals aboard.

      • Thomas Johnson

        No, they rain it down on all the rest of us.

  • Craigmar

    This reminds me of the Dave Matthews Band tour bus dumping it’s load on the upturned faces of Chicago River boat excursion passengers.

  • George Kingfish Stevens

    I’m out of work. Obama is destroying the economy. My wife wants a divorce. My son dates an interior designer named Reginald who has spiked pink hair and my daughter is a camp follower with the Namibian Army.

    Lord, O Lord, (arms outstretched) what MORE can you do to me???

    What the h—–. Oh my GAWDDDDDD!!!!

  • George Kingfish Stevens

    Couldn’t they wait until they got to Flushing Meadows???

  • Tom Davidson

    It could have happened at Washington National (Ronald Reagan) Airport, with greater meaning.

    • George Kingfish Stevens

      Do you think there will ever even be an Obama International Helipad to honor the zoomdizzy we call POTUS?

  • Ted Rutherford

    This is how I feel every time Obuckwheat speaks!



  • spydee

    I think that would make it Air Force Number 2

    • glenp827

      hahahah now that was funny!

  • Astra

    That was Air Force One flying over the US Constitution.

  • airlineperson

    As others have stated there is no “dump” switch for the lavs inside the planes. Also, if the stuff wasn’t blue, it wasn’t waste. The tanks are filled with fresh “blue juice” (mostly for odor control) before departure. Waste mixes with the blue juice. Later, the waste+blue is extracted into waste truck tanks for disposal. If the valves leak inflight, the rain would be blue.
    My guess is that’s it’s grease from the flap or gear actuators, if it’s from a plane at all …

  • Defeat Liberals

    Anyone know if it was Air Force 1? Sure sounds like something Obummer would do.

  • H

    And thats why I’m happy elephants dont fly. Imagine the HORROR!

  • The Morrigan's Pet

    Another reason to avoid buying a house near an airport.

  • Max Maxwell

    Like any bird on take off it had to lighten its load. Bet the plane flew better
    after releif. Or maybe the plane was just expressing its opinion of New York
    as it left.

  • jnsesq

    NOW we know who gives a flying $hit.

  • Say What

    Poo Poo Pee Doo!
    Poo Poo Pee Doo!

    Good thing it wasn’t chili dog day at the airport!

  • akgr

    This is news? The Kennedys have been crapping on the US for decades. They’re just lucky it didn’t involve a kick to the crotch!

  • bob S.

    sounds like a normal afternoon on long island to me

  • Lincoln Stern

    “Pilot to bombardier – we have the target in sight”

  • RoyBoySays

    214 plus comments,on a story that’s full of crap………oh my!

  • Otis Campbell

    Just more $hit from the airline industry.

  • Kevin Stowell

  • peterwoohoo

    When birds drop on you, it’s considered good luck!

  • Ricky

    I work on the ramp, this story is bogus! Lavatory waste from aircraft can only be dumped ‘manually’ on the ground! This plane must have been flying extremely low, with it’s jet engines off for a dump like that to have occurred if at all! Great tabloid sell!

  • Farkus Labotomy

    Fly the crappy skies…

    Romance? Well it most likely happened when some one said something like this; “I promise you the earth and stars and…. OH CRAP!!!…”

    Sounds like a bit of a B teen movie to me…

    Move along, nothing to be seen here…

  • Barack Mugabe

    Probably Air Force One krapping all over us again.


    I bet the woman has had worse thing flung on the face.

    • George Kingfish Stevens

      Now, now. We’re not tawkin’ ’bout ya’ mama, heah, now.

    There are no proverbs about storms of poop.

      It must have hit the fan

      HERE’S ONE:

      “As I was walking beneath the sky,
      A bird put “whitewash” in my eye.
      I didn’t scream, I didn’t cry,
      I’m only glad that cows can’t fly!”

      • Grandpa Simpson

        I learned it like this:

        Birdy birdy in the sky
        drop a turdy in my eye
        I’m a big boy I won’t cry
        I’m just glad that cows don’t fly.

  • HeadsUp

    So much for “the friendly skies”.

  • Jburton

    It was the Obama campaign distributing leaflets…………

  • Bugzie

    When I lived in Howard Beach I always told people, “When you fly into JFK, please don’t flush!”

  • enoughAlready911

    How do you clean this up? I mean if they are from NY how can you determine where the sh!t stops and the NY’er starts?

    Your pal in fly over country.

  • C Cryan

    Mr Leahy says it was the sh&thawk, unleashing a sh&t tsunami, Ricky!
