Fire suppression foam?
Looks like someone accidentally set off the hangar fire suppression system. We don't use sprinklers in the hangars. Water just spreads flammable liquids such as fuel, hydraulic fluids, paint, solvents, etc. Most hangars have a huge foam dispenser that will fill the hangar in under a minute. If you hear the fire alarm, get the hell out, fast!
Too much detergent in the Maytag again.
Damned green beer! Too foamy!
Low cloud cover today?
Someone put regular dishwashing detergent in the automatic dishwasher. Don't ask me how I know.
I doubt it was an accident. We had a guy on USS LaSalle who activated the AFFF stations a couple of times and we blew through $100,000 of foam out of each tank filling our hanger with suds. When he did it coming out of Karachi and flooded our hanger again when it had about 200 big outgoing mailbags from our month in Karachi the skipper came on the 1MC and said, "if I find you I won't take you to mast. I will throw your worthless ass overboard." Never happened again. We were at the time transiting the NAS heading back to Bahrain before getting turned south again.
"I will throw your worthless ass overboard." Leadership...
She was a ship with a very active helo det or two. AFFF doesn't grow on trees and no it wasn't held in deep storage. Once the tanks were blown thru there was nothing save the fire parties with donkey dicks in the 5 gallon AFFF to put out main space fires or helo fires. All of that primary class Bravo fire fighting ready goodness was gone. Kaput. Why don't you review what happens when the main space fire gets out of control or what happens when even JP5 burns at sea.
AFFF (Aqueous Fire Fighting Foam) system was set off accidentally. Our hangar has had two accidental firings of the AFFF cannons caused by malfunctioning sensors. Here's a videohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lK8IIRZ4Q80Al_in_Ottawa
The helos needed a relaxing bubble bath?
Makes me think of the movie Mr. Roberts.jack
AFFF is some of the best detergent for dirty and greasy clothes.Works pretty good in the detergent tank for pressure washers too. Really easy to use too much, experiment with smaller dilutions to find the proper mixtureNot that expensive either.
If it weren't for all the windows, I'd guess someone had been making it snow in the McKinley Climatic Lab on Eglin AFB.
