Airline pilot explains where poo goes when you use toilet on plane

An airline pilot has revealed to his legion fans what happens to poo from plane toilets mid-flight.

Social media user Garrett regularly shares videos online about his life as an airline pilot, from how to get a job in aviation to why you don't have to be afraid of flying.

Recently Garrett took to TikTok to debunk claims that poo is dumped onto the population below the plane if someone uses the facilities on board.

Posting the video to his @flywithgarrett account, which has gained more than 300,000 likes, he said: "When you're on an aeroplane and you gotta go, where does it go?

"Did you know that whenever you flush the toilet on the aircraft, it actually doesn't dump out into the population down below?

"It goes through plumbing to the rear of the aircraft and the seal compartments where the ground crew at the destination will remove all that waste.

"On a 747 – on a long haul flight – toilets can be flushed over a thousand times, creating over 320 gallons of waste. That's a lot."

Viewers were left flabbergasted that the fact needed to be explained as they didn't realise that some people actually believed that poo is dumped off the plane.

One user said: "I just haven't thought about this like ever."

Another added: "Other actually people that believe that it would get expelled from the aircraft to the population below? And if so, do these people vote?"

A third commented: "Wait ppl actually think it dumps out below? So they think there’s [poo] falling out the sky that's not the [eagles]?"

But some actually did believe that as one user said: "I've always questioned that."

Another replied: "I thought they dropped it into the ocean."

However, some users were completely distracted by the pilots good looks and paid no attention to what he said in the 30-second clip.

Another added: "Yes, you can be my pilot anytime."

A third asked: "Anyone else not hear a word he said?"
