Audio answer: ‘Toilet water’

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


A transatlantic flight was at cruise level and preparing to enter oceanic airspace when the captain was notified of water leaking from a lavatory into the passenger cabin. The captain wasn’t sure if this was a danger to the safety of the flight, so to be sure, he decided to burn off fuel and divert to his nearest alternative airport. After landing, a technician solved the problem and cleaned the area which was affected. The flight was ready for takeoff again, three hours after landing.
