TC Probes Toilet Waste Incidents

Transport Canada is investigating a spate of incidents in which it’s believed toilet waste has leaked from aircraft onto people and property below in B.C. So far, there have been reports from Kelowna, Armstrong, Williams Lake and Abbotsford, including one in which the occupant of a car hit by waste had to get medical treatment for an eye infection caused by the excrement. “I had it in my eyes, my hair. We were inundated,” said Sue Allan, who was waiting at a light in Kelowna, with her sunroof open, when the mishap occurred.

Others in Armstrong and Abbotsford returned to their cars to find them covered in foul smelling waste. In all cases, the victims reported seeing low-flying aircraft in the area. TC is going over Nav Canada flight data to try to narrow down the search.
