Spilled coffee forces plane to divert over Atlantic

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-49672351

A passenger aircraft with 337 people on board was forced to divert on 6 February 2019 after the pilot spilled coffee on the controls panel, UK investigators say.

The Airbus A330-243 from Frankfurt, Germany, to Cancun, Mexico, had to land in Shannon, Ireland, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) reports.

This was because the pilots' audio control panels (ACP) started melting and there was smoke in the cockpit.

The pilots had to used oxygen masks. There were no injuries.
What on earth was in the coffee .....
