We dump fuel quite often on the AWACS (E-3), coming back to Tinker we dump over lake Draper in southern Oklahoma. We joke about not fishing in the lake
I've also dumped over the atlantic several times, usually we clear through ATC when we are dumping and dump at around 25,oooft so it evaporates before hitting the ground. ONce with one engine out we dumped at 22,ooo but the fuel still evaporates at that level.Ciao.
