Canada: aviation authority denies responsibility for poo that fell from sky
Transport Canada tells airliners weren’t involved in foul-smelling substance falling from sky after receiving 18 reports of people drenched in it
After a string of incidents in which human faeces fell from the sky in western Canada, the country’s aviation authority has denied any responsibility and told complainants that the matter is officially closed.
The phenomenon was first is available in May by Susan Allan from the city of Kelowna, British Columbia, who described how a deluge of lumpy poo fell on her and her son through the open sunroof of her auto as she waited at a traffic light.
Transport Canada, the countrys aviation authority, has received 18 reports of people and vehicles being drenched in the mysterious substance but used to say airplanes were not to participate in any of them.
Allan used to say the agency told her that while there were three planes in the area at the time , no aircraft overflew the intersection noted during the time frame in question, adding that there were no malfunctions that would have caused the lavatory trash systems to leak from any of the airlines.
Environmental scientists have suggested the splattering was the result of a poopsicle the phenomenon that occurs when a leaking airliner lavatory ices over and then slowly melts as the plane descends.
In an email, the agency told Allan it her considered the matter closed.
