Apparently that's a hoax. And the last thread I was in where somebody pointed out that it was a hoax, another guy chimed in that he was in the Air Force and worked with ultra-top-shelf IR cameras of the sort that are meant to be able to see individual nose hairs from beyond the moon. He said he and his buddies had conducted weeks and weeks of research, trying to get their farts to show up in a meaningful way, and they couldn't.

I'm not sure I'd necessarily believe it was a hoax from some random YouTube video, but I absolutely trust that this was the first and possibly the only thing a bunch of 20-something enlisted guys spent their time on when given an IR camera.

I probably shouldn't be surprised that Wikipedia has a very in-depth article on "Fart Lighting".

An airport spokesperson originally told WNCN the odor was caused by a passenger who "passed gas." An updated statement from the airport referred to the incident a "medical call" after the planed deplaned "normally."
"The medical call came in for someone affected by an odor after the plane deplaned normally," the airport official said in the statement.


Someone was paid to write that. Someone was interviewed, hired as a professional writer, and one day at work, they typed that up and hit "submit".

You'll like the Boeing Dreamliner.

Part of the design included a lower cabin pressure. Cabin pressure, as you know, is a prime culprit in the passenger in the seat in front of you passing gas. The official design methodology included solving the problem.


From some of the stories you hear mid Atlantic when the stew is consoling you in the back of the plane, quite aware of the concert going on at seat level one row forward..
