Another phenomena that has not been brought up. But perhaps because it
was too early in the 20th century to happen.
Waste products of airline passengers being dumped all at once.
If the aircraft is high enough said 'products' coalesce into a frozen mass.  
I can't remember when but once it happened to land on a house(?) and
the occupants complained to the authorities about the smelly ice ball
that came from the sky. It was discerned it came from a jetliner and
from what I understand it was the policy of the airlines to eject it
over water(ocean) and the crew made a mistake and did it over land. Of
course in 1952 it would have had to be a propeller-driven aircraft.

Back to my lurk hole.
