This happened at Northeast Philadelphia Airport about 2 or 3 years ago- a child yanked the pull station for the foam deluge system, and caused several millions of dollars in damage to several aircraft parked inside- all had to have their engines replaced, including one of the major Philly network news helicopters, as well as the corporate jet for the Comcast Corporation."Loyalty Above all Else.

What a mess
Looks like some one is not going to able to sit down for quite a while after the butt chewing he's going to get.
This looks a lot like what happened a few years ago at Ellsworth Air Force Base. Some one sent me a PowerPoint with photos of the mess as it was occurring. The file is too big to post here. At least none of the B-1 bombers got caught in that mess."Your spill is our thrill."

HiEx Foam test
This was not a test that went bad.
This was a full test buy the military to confirm the systems design.
Notice how high they had the scaffold built, and although its hard to see here, there is a large plastic curtain installed to protect certain areas.
Planned and functioned as designed.
