Plane Drops Black Sludge On Malverne Residents

Malvernite says black oily deposits fell out of the sky and onto his neighbors Thursday night.

While sitting in their backyard, enjoying the unseasonably warm weather Thursday night, residents in Malverne say black oily sludge fell from the sky after a plane passed overhead.

Laurence Major Jr., a neighbor of the Nassau Boulevard residents who experienced this strange incident, shared their story with members of the "I Love Malverne...our village, our schools & our merchants" Facebook page Friday morning.

According to Major, around 9:21 p.m. on Feb. 23, "large droplets of an oily black sludge fell from the sky just moments after an airliner passed overhead."

Malverne Police responded to the home and contacted the Port Authority Police, who said that the fluid accidentally discharged from a plane. A further investigation will not be conducted by the Port Authority, according to Malverne Police Chief John Aresta. The discharge could be 'Lavatory Fluid,' according to Major, who described the droplets as being approximately one half to 1 inch in size and visible on his neighbors' clothing, face, porch deck and patio table.

Aresta said the Port Authority Police advised that anyone who comes in contact with the discharge should shower immediately.

Patch has reached out to the Federal Aviation Administration, but the agency has yet to return requests for comment on the incident.

This is a developing story, which Patch will update as more information becomes available. If you have any information about this incident, contact Local Editor Tara Conry at 516-220-6621 or tara.conry@Patch.com.

This needs serious attention. It's bad enough that they are bombarding us with the noise and every attempt to change this seems to be met with a brick wall. Now they are crapping all over us... bad news all around. I've been in touch with Senator Skelos office and will post any new info.

I'm thinking that they meant/said "Lavatory" not "Laboratory".

this is enough already they need to keep all the traffic out to the Atlantic until higher altitudes. The planes goes directly over my house (only certain times) but i always wonder when it my turn to have some thing fall and crash into the neighbor hood.
