Next Time Use A Sippy Cup

This reads like a scene in “Airplane”

(Reuters) – Blamed initially on ‘engine failure’, it emerged on Tuesday that a government jet carrying Serbia’s president to Italy last week was forced to turn back when the co-pilot spilled coffee on the instrument board.

Advisers to President Tomislav Nikolic described being “thrown around the cabin” when the plane — a 34-year-old French-built Falcon 50 — began tumbling through the air on Friday.

…An investigation determined that the co-pilot, Bojan Zoric, had spilled coffee on the instrument board “due to ongoing turbulence”.

“I began wiping the board and accidentally activated the ’emergency slat’ button,” which automatically turned off the automatic pilot and the plane began losing altitude, Zoric said in the report by Serbia’s Civil Aviation Directorate .
