Ladies And Gentlemen, does anyone know how to fly a teapot?

The rulebook on inflight aircraft safety was at risk of being torn up and used to strain tea with this weekend after the curious incident on an RAF flight earlier last week.

A Nimrod aircraft flying from Cornwall to Kinloss on Monday had to make an inflight temporary repair, blocking a hatch with a teapot.

'' We took the precaution of draining the tea inside the pot before using it to prevent the plane from falling out of the sky, didn't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater'', said RAF Captain Hillary Duff in a press conference.

The Captain did add that things weren't quite as cool as many people were saying, far from it. When the pot was cleared of it's tea, the crew had to drink it with no milk and as speedily as possible, with the risk of burnt mouths all round a strong possibility.

  • Rumours that a coffee pot could have also been used as easily as the teapot have been dismissed by RAF personnel as unpatriotic this evening.
