Here's What Airplane Toilets Do With Your Waste

Aircraft bogs are not the best. They're cramped, have no windows and you can't help but have a mild cardiac arrest when you hit the flush because it's so fucking loud.

But have you ever wondered where it is your shit is actually going? Well wonder no more.

It seems modern airliners have a pretty complex way of dealing with your feces and it relies on strong suction from the flush.

When pulling the chain a valve opens which sucks all of the poo from the toilet bowl. This is then coated with teflon, which is what non-stick pans are lined with.

The contents is then moved through pipes, accelerating faster than an F1 car, before being stored in tanks somewhere on board the aircraft.

When it lands, just like us having to expel our waste, so does the plane. A honey truck, which is a fancy name for a sewage vehicle, is driven to attach a powerful vacuum hose to the plane's waste tanks.

The hose is then attached by hand and gallons of waste is pumped into the honey truck.

Fair play to the men that have to do that, it's a fairly shitty job.

Once hundreds of gallons of human waste is removed, the plane can then prepare for it's next take off and another onslaught of crap.
