Pilot spills coffee, forces emergency landing of plane with 326 people

This is a bit scary now! A commercial flight with 326 people on board was forced to make an emergency landing when hot coffee was accidentally spilled over the cockpit control panel over the Atlantic Ocean. The Airbus A330-243 flying to Cancun, Mexico, from Frankfurt, landed at Shannon in Ireland. With the hot liquid causing a strong electrical burning smell and smoke rising from the panel, the captain decided to divert. The incident happened after a pilot put his coffee cup without a lid on a tray table rather than in a cup holder, according to reports.
