When it's that rough they are tied down, but they do sometimes break free.

Thank you both for your comments. When a/c are moved on the flight deck they are always lashed down at their destination, either chain or wire cable with ratchet tensioners. Rough weather they are double lashed along with all othe FD equipment.
