How did they determine it was U? Did a jet full of U management pass overhead, and as their s**t does not stink, was readily identifiable?

Oh, the urge to descend to potty humor!!

Seriously, I am unaware of any means to intentionally dump a lav inflight. Am I missing something, or is this just a failure of the mechanical doughnut that holds back the noxious tide?
