We’ve all had bad days at the office when you can’t seem to do anything right and the very first email you send seems to unravel the entire day.
A Belgian Air Force mechanic experienced something a little worse than getting a passive aggressive email from Susan in Accounting. He was going about his business, servicing an F-16 jet, when he had a little “oopsie” and pressed the big red button that read, “FIRE MISSILE”. At least, that’s how I imagine it went.
The poor mechanic accidentally shot off a Vulcan cannon that headed straight for another F-16, which promptly exploded into a gazillion pieces. Two technicians were injured in the accident, but were promptly treated at the scene and everything turned out okay. The yearly Christmas party might be a little awkward though.
