L.I. Couple Wants Answers After Plane Dumps Lavatory Sludge on Them http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2012/02...wers-after-lavatory-leak-from-overhead-plane/ MALVERNE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) â€” 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. â€œA plane was coming over. Next thing you know she says â€˜Oh my God itâ€™s raining.â€™ I said â€˜No itâ€™s notâ€™,â€ Artie Hughes told 1010 WINSâ€™ Sonia Rincon. â€œSome black liquid, black oil came off on her face, and I walked around and I looked and said â€˜Oh my God.â€™ There was quarter-sized, nickel-sized, dime-sized drops all over my deck, my barbecue, my table,â€ he said. LISTEN: 1010 WINSâ€™ Sonia Rincon reports Thinking something was wrong with the plane, they called police. â€œIt was oily in substance, blackish-greenish oil. I thought it was hydraulic fluid and then the policeman came down and said â€˜No I donâ€™t think so. Looks like something nastier than thatâ€™,â€ Hughes said. The officer suspected it was most likely treated sewage, returning after making several phone calls for confirmation. â€œHe had spoken to somebody down at either the Port Authority or the FAA and said â€˜Yeah, it looks like there was an incident,â€ he said. â€œSome lavatory excrement had leaked out.â€ The couple tell Rincon they just want an explanation, and for this kind of incident to not happen again. â€œI think they should investigate and find out what happened,â€ Hughes said. â€œWas a button pushd? Was the lavatory filled to capacity before it left the ground?â€wondered.
