Spilled coffee can caused great damage

Just read about the news about how a simple cup of coffee ended out hijacking a plane and forcing the plane to do an emergency landing.


The story has it that a cup of spilled coffee in the cockpit (apparently by the captain of the plane), ended out jamming the communication system.

Not only did it interfere with the communication system, it also send out signals that it was being hijacked!

So, this United Air Lines flight 940 that was going from Chicago to Frankfurt have to make an emergency landing at Toronto Pearson International Airport.

The good thing about this whole saga is no one was injured, but I wonder what would happened to the captain that caused this whole boo-boo...
