True. In this case no electronics, but a fellow aviator next to you. Is the spillage minor/major? What if a future malfunction reveals water damage? Etc etc. Your choice.

In today's electronic environment it is very difficult to cover something up. What is worse, owning up by reporting or having to deal with it later and explaining why you did not report?

If he had an engine failure then this is what it might have looked like, but if it is an all engines working take off, mmmmmm. The main wheels literally break ground as the runway ends.
