US Air Force Accidentally Fills Entire Hangar With Foam

Here’s why the US Air Force is the best: not only do you get to fly awesome drones, every once in a while your superiors say “Oh, fine, we’ll throw another foam party”, and the jets are doused in fire suppressant.

But wait, this was no rave. It was just a huge annoying accident at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, where a welder accidentally triggered the emergency fire systems, releasing galactic quantities of foam retardant. It’s sort of cute to see a little A-10 poking its head out of a bubble bath, but then you see that the foam spilled out of the hangar and try to wrap your head around what this must have been like to clean up.
