Red Bull "Mishap" In Air Force Plane Cost Thousands Of Dollars (REAL)
Red Bull does not give the Air Force wings. The "Military Times" just released a huge database of aviation mishaps that span from 2011 through last year. The eagles eyes at “The War Zone” found a crazy incident that happened, and naturally shared it.
Last June, an MC-12W Spy Plane was on a training mission in Florida and a co-pilot grabbed a Red Bull from his backpack. Before he could open it, the can exploded and the drink went everywhere. Now keep in mind, those planes are loaded with touch high tech controls and equipment. Picture you spilling an entire drink on your keyboard and magnify that by 100.
The co-pilot mopped up what he could, but they smelled an odor and had to return to base. Fixing the jet cost 113-thousand dollars! That’s about seven-thousand bucks per ounce of the energy drink. The military has now developed a 12-hundred dollar mug to keep this stuff from happening.

Florida Landfall Team Members Picked Beer Over Hurricane Irma Prep (REAL)
The “Miami Herald” has brought to light some bad behavior by half of North Bay Village Police Department's Landfall Team. While Hurricane Irma began ripping through Florida last September, six members of the team, spurred on by their commander, sat around drinking beer and talking football instead of doing their jobs.
Calls were coming and the officers were supposed to be patrolling in special high water vehicles. Instead, according to the report, the men were sitting around a table at City Hall. An officer, one of two left to patrol by themselves, came in, was offered a drink but declined, and later reported the party.
The hurricane party broke up after 1am the next morning with the commander, Lieutenant James McCready, instructing the guys to destroy the evidence. He later said it was “an error in judgement” and removed from that duty for 12 months. Everyone else forfeited their pay.
