    Default Something leaking out of several B737 during takeoff



    There is the image.
    I have seen this several times and tried to find what that is but no luck so far.

    Finally I decided to ask her since most people would know more than me

    Here is another example from a B737.

    So far I have seen this on B733, B73H and B738 but not all of them leak whatever it is during takeoff.

    That's the potable water drain mast. You're welcome.

    The drain is the forward galley drain mast, sometimes they get a bit blocked up, so when the aircraft pressurizes and takes off it blows what is in the line out. You will see it often on the ground as the flight attendants put liquid down them before take off.
    I know this as I am an engineer on 737's

    Are you implying that "they"are intentionally spraying us with dihydrogen monoxide? I better take a dose of MMS to protect my body from that.

    The combination of sarcasm, ironing, and reality are too good to not point out when an airplane is indeed dispensing potentially deadly chemicals...

    ...I'll have to finish this post later, someone's at the door.
