    I've seen the result of doing the same trick in an offshore hangar - not using foam, using salt water. What happens when the system was tested with the vital cut-off valve left in the open position, one aircraft in the hangar.

    Mmmmm, listen to that aluminium grow!

    The aircraft was never the same after that, lots of avionic snags despite copious fresh water dousing.

    In the past [do not know if it is still in the mix] the fire suppression system in the BA Hangars had in the mix pig's blood which allegedly makes the spray foam more, thus helping smother the fire. In various hangars over the years, the system has gone off inadvertently and the result was not nice. Some of the guys were not happy having to clean out their tool trolleys [back when we were allowed to have them] that were full of this foul smelling liquid. I remember that one poor guy was away on leave when an incident happened and they just wheeled his toolbox over to the corner of the hangar and left it there [it was locked] By the time he was back from leave after two weeks and asking where his toolbox was, he was just told to follow the smell!!

    Having the threat of a pigs blood deluge may not be PC in these sensitive days.
