Fire extinguishing system goes off at Air Force base — now it’s a party (6 Photos)

  • Cruzer117

    Whats sad about all this is that the foam used is highly corosive, so can you imagine what the planes will be like if not washed ASAP!
    We had this happen at work also and oil cans had rusted overnight because of this foam.

  • seriously

    Huh ? Wtf ?

  • plsgoaway

    What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    You'll bring the glow sticks???? Grab your balls while your at it princess. I'll bring the girls and the music.

    I've got the acid!

    That's awesome those jets are pretty musch f Ed up though afff is really corrosive.

  • Jeff

    Well at least they know it works now.

  • Dude Imbibes

    Hulk sorry

    Not sure where everyone is getting their information but I work in fire alarm protection and that shit is crazy…those foam systems can fill a hangar in under 30 secs depending on how it's programmed…as for corrosive if it's not tested every year(as req'd by NFPA/ULC) then yah it can get corrosive as it sits over time but if the system
    Is up to date all it does is make one hell of a mess and makes the planes really clean…but the bill to clean it up and recharge those systems is pricey. We had a cleaning company go bankrupt here cuz they tripped the foam system for an airline at their hangar…

    Still, must be reassuring for the people working there to know that their fire system doesn't fuck around.

    This happened at my base once before. It was pretty cool until you realize how much money that costs. Ours was set off accidentally and the cleanup and recharge is super expensive. People lose their jobs/rank for stuff like this.

    Fighter jets? Party? Oh, its a dream. Wait a minute thats true!!!!

  • Bill57

    that is pretty cool i like how there is fome all over the airplanes thank you for your service

  • keith

    SSomeone asked about state of aircraft. We had the system deploy earlier in the year but it didn't foam, it just sprayed the liquid. Anything ferrous the liquid touched corroded straight away, stuff is highly corrosive :o(

  • joe testarosa

    That's one expensive ejaculation

  • JMc

    It's all fun and games 'til the boss finds out about it.

  • Melissa O'Neill

    what a mess but it looks like it would be fun to play in!

  • yetihw

    Actually thats co2that will kill you that way halon will support life but not fire. Halon depletes the ozone and is illegal to manufacture for that reason its been replaced by fm-200 and energen.

    Oh god, when did this happen? I live not 5 minutes from Eglin

    • William

      Dang really? I didn't think that there was another chiver near niceville. Maybe you'll see me in a chive shirt. KCCO!

  • Paul

    How the hell do you clean that up? Does it just go away on its own or what?

    • Bordin Tienyam

      It's go down into a drain in the bay, then toward diversion valve which lead it to storage tank. Then its release slowly to industrial sewer. On First picture, with that amount it will take about 2 days for it to drain. Then you just have to spray it with water in to the drain.

      These fire system are part of my career field in USAF.

    That fucking sucks. Wanna know why? Because that's my job. Wanna know something cool though? 1 ounce of that stuff expands to about 27 cubic feet.

    #1 the jet in the back is mine (no matter what Phill says) Its A0353 the best jet in the AF!!!!! I Im told it had its wing off and a lot of electrical panels open when this happened. Sucks to be the current Crew Chief 🙂 I crew'd her 99-04 during the conformal fuel tank tests.

    'I was just cleaning it and it went off'

  • Sabe o que acontece quando o alarme de incêndio dispara acidentalmente em um hangar? | ApareSido

    […] lá no Chive. […]

    As I read through this, there are some real buzzkills hating on what would most definitely be a good time. Get some booze and you wouldn't even notice the smell… hahahahaha
