A man was soaking up the sun in his garden in Windsor, in the south-east of England, when a passing plane dropped toilet waste on him and his patio furniture, a local councilor said during the a recent meeting. Loading

âHer whole garden was splashed in a very nasty way,â said Karen Davies, Ward Councilor for Clewer East, at the October 14 meeting. âHe was in his backyard at the time and it was a really horrible, horrible experience,â the local lawmaker continued.
The unfortunate incident, in which a plane “dumped sewage”, took place in July, according to the minutes of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead‘s most recent aviation forum.
âThe whole garden, he and the garden umbrellasâ were âcoveredâ in poo, Davies explained. “It is absolutely appalling,” she said at the meeting.
Davies said there are several incidents each year in which “frozen sewage” is dumped along air routes. Windsor is on the flight path to London Heathrow Airport, which is approximately eight miles from the historic city.
In June, The Sun reported that Portsmouth in southern England remained “terrified” after “frozen poo” fell from the sky.
But, Davies said landing raw sewage in someone’s backyard is much rarer. Another advisor suggested that the warmer summer weather may have contributed to this.
According to the Maidenhead Advertiser, the Windsor resident was unable to claim any insurance against the ordeal as the cost of the damage was relatively low.
Whitfield Parish Councilor Geoff Paxton, who has worked with airlines for four decades, said what had happened was “so rare” and hadn’t seen for a long time. He added that modern toilets on airplanes are vacuum secured and are normally reliable because they rely on pressurized suction to function.
