I was in Atlanta on Thursday, waiting for a flight back to Fort Worth. I was standing, watching out the window at gate D-4 as a plane prepared for departure. Apparently, the windows were dirty or something because, while I watched, one of the pilots opened the left cockpit window and climbed partially out of the Boeing 737. In his hand he held a one liter bottle of Dasani water, which he poured on the windshield. They used the wipers to wipe it off before he poured more of it on. He eventually emptied the whole bottle. I assume they were able to get the window clean. The next time you get on a plane, you can feel safe because the pilots have cleaned there windshield with bottled water.
