Did anyone else hear this one? About a week a ago, a Massachussets woman's car was badly damaged by "frozen waste" dropped by a passing airplane. Can you imagine? And to top it off, SHE is going to have to pay for the damages! The authorities have identified the "ice" but cannot tell her from which airline.

Guess they have to drop it somewhere. No telling how many things frozen waste has wasted. This one just got reported.

Windshield damage possibly by frozen waist from an aircraft.
When: March 30th, 2007 approximately 7:15am central time.
Where: Dallas, Texas
Location: Eastbound LBJ between Greenville Avenue, and Miller Road.
My truck was recently struck by a falling object about the size of a cantaloupe.
It was very rigid about 10 inches across the top forming down to about a 4 inch blunt point. The texture was the likeness of a heavy rock, and the color was dark or a rusty brown. I caught about ¼ of a second as it struck behind the driver side windshield wiper while bouncing off the inner ridge line inside dash. I obtained a good image when the falling object bounced back upward for about 1 good second.
Because of a new wreck on LBJ by Greenville Avenue – no traffic was getting by, so I avoided the wreck via Greenville Ave. exit. When I used the next on ramp, traffic was void both in front and behind my entrance on the HWY. No bridges are in the vicinity where this had occurred. Due to ongoing construction, no way could anyone could have distance to launch the object that struck my truck, or was their any slope to the fall because it would have damaged the windshield wiper. I could not stop to find the object, because my first instinct was to leave imminent danger. I was going to go back to the scene, but we had extensive rain and five o’clock traffic would not allow such a search. I also examined the damage and found absolutely no residue, or any damage to the wiper blade as I managed to make it home 60 miles later. I wonder what it was. Damage is going to be about $300.00.
“Airlines are not permitted to dump lavatory waste while in flight.
FAA spokeswoman Holly Baker said that if blue ice hit the Cadamores'
house, a leak most likely occurred in a jet lavatory. At higher
attitudes the leak forms ice on the aircraft. As the jet descends, the
ice warms and starts to fall off the plane.”

They should try and keep it ON THE PLANE IN A SEPERATE TANK instead of just dropping it!

Today they said that gasoline and diesel are going higher as the months get warmer. In California it's over $4.00 a gallon and rising. Also that semi drivers have to pay 25% more for their tolls. Don't they know that they pay enough out for diesel that we don't need to add more fuel to the fire. Truckers have to make a living to.

Here it's about £1 a litre - about $6 a (US) gallon. The last time I drove it was 35p a gallon .... those were the days! Good job my cycle doesn't need petrol!
That was on the news here too - now you know why we Brits never go out without an umbrella. :)
