Airplane safety goes to pot

Aircraft crew uses teapot to fix malfunction

An RAF Kinloss spokeswoman said there was a malfunction with a hatch from which sonar buoys are thrown during search and rescue missions.

The spokeswoman said: "There was a minor malfunction with the hatch cover and the teapot would have been used to make it more comfortable for the crew."

The article focuses on safety concerns, but I think they're missing the real story. They repaired an airplane with a teapot. That is totally awesome.
