San Jose International got a little cleaner today

Postby gmarshall » Sat Nov 19, 2016 3:25 am

We've all seen hangars full of fire retardant foam.

Apparently a snafu with a fire retardant system led to an uncontained foam release *outside* a hangar, covering at least one access road a few feet deep in foam.

Haven't seen an aerial of the 'disaster' but there must be a pic somewhere.

Wait, found an aerial, doesn't show the whole extent of the mess:

We talked about this, briefly, in UCAP417 which I'm hoping will be posted later tonight.
