Police officers in Winnipeg were left red-faced after an x-rated conversation they were having in the privacy of the helicopter cockpit was accidentally blasted over the loudspeaker to the entire city.
The officers were flying above the city in the AIR1 police force helicopter when they accidentally turned on the public broadcast system in the chopper without realising it. Their conversation turned a little blue too, as they talked about sex, money and added in a sprinkling of swearing for good measure.
That moment you realize you left the speakerphone on while having an X-rated conversation in a Police Helicopter. #whoops

According to what resident Brandi Armstrong told Canadian TV station CBC, one officer asked the other "Can you give me a blowjob?", to which the response was "you have too much body hair."
The hashtag #whoops was trending as a result, with members of the public tweeting about the inappropriate conversation that was going on overhead as the chopper passed by, until someone let the guys inside know what was happening.
They did eventually turn it off, and the police department in Winnipeg were very apologetic about the whole thing.

A statement from the police department said that "some content of the conversation was inappropriate...The involved members were not able to hear the public address system from within the aircraft. They became aware their conversation had been broadcast and immediately turned the system off", and apologised for any offence caused.
The lesson here is that next time you're in a helicopter, keep the conversation clean, just in case.
