I would be amazed if it were blue flush fluid because...
Airbus 320's don't use that!
The 320 lav system works with normal water which comes from the same reservoir as the potable water. The LAV system is also serviced at the rear of the 320's.
Perhaps old versions of the 320 use the system with the blue lav fluid, but I've never heard of that.

Definetly blue juice. It looks like someone didn't make sure that the excess drained out before they closed the fill cap, or didn't make sure that the fill cap was securely latched before they finished servicing the plane.
United 717 heavy, you're facing the wrong way. Any chance you can powerback to get off of my deice pad?
And it's the toilet "flush" blue flued stuff. The vent obvously came open mid-flight or something seeing as how it's like going backwards on the aircraft suggesting the wind sprayed it along the side of the aircraft.

Sabenaboy is right. A320's(and just about all the other Airubuses) use potable water for the toilets. Why does this A320 have blue liquid?
Could it be some kind of hydraulic fluid that leaked? That doesnt look like a potable water or lav access door to me...most Airbuses have those either on the other side closer to the middle or towards the back of the plane.

maybe a plane landed, and somehow, the blue stuff from the toilets got out from a rough landing, then the AF plane landed on the same runway right afterwards and the stuff was splashed all over the belly by the nose wheels...just a thought.lol
