This is not how they wash planes, this is the accidental discharge of an emergency fire system in an airplane hanger.

It’s a fire suppression system set off in error. Obviously.

Actually, it looks like they are testing the fire suppression system…

Actually that’s the fire extinguishing system for the Hangar.

This is actually an accident. The fire suppression system wouldn’t shut off, filling the entire hangar.

Thats definitely a fire suppression system dropping fire retardant foam. Wether it was set of on purpose or on accident I have no idea, but it sure looks like fun lol.

I think its mainly foam — if that guy with the camera was up to his neck in water, I think he would look a little more worried.

I’m fairly sure that the foamy soapy material is a fire retardant, and that this is a fire-safety system. The photographs are most likely from a test of the system.

Well, if it’s mostly soap bubbles, the mount of water used would be less than if, say, power washers were used to hose of the entire airplane.

Looks more like emergency fire suppression than plane washing.

Gee I think it might be an emergency fire suppression system. Does anyone else think that? I’m just not sure, but it could be. Maybe I’ve read it somewhere 11 fkn times lately.
