The "Military Times" just published a database of military mishaps. It spans from 2011 to 2017 and contains one gem of a story. A co-pilot got a Red Bull out of his backpack and it exploded before he could open it.  The repair bill from the liquid going everywhere was a shocking 113-thousand dollars.

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.

Here's a list of other "mishaps" listed in the new database released by the Military.
