Oops! Spilling any liquids on the flight deck is definitely no laughing matter. Anytime the flight attendants pass us drinks of any sort, we try our best to keep them away from the center consoles and flight controls.
Normally, we use the plastic lids in hopes that if we were to clumsily finger the cups, that little amount of hazard causing liquids stream out! Every once in awhile, we will reach for the cups just at the wrong angle or even miss our lips while making radio responses. Most of the time, we just spill upon ourselves! Unfortunately, these pilots were not that lucky. This may have been the most expensive cup of coffee ever brewed.
Wishing you Blue Skies and Smooth Flights,
