It happens, I've heard more than a few stories of foam being dumped in hangers. One involved a stealth bomber with the cockpit open. Oops. :shock:

One of our tech's recently dumped a CO2 system... by his own fault (inexperience with suppression, he didn't pull the solenoids). We also had a tech disable 2000lbs of FM200 gas, but didn't know about a smaller 80lb tank hidden away under some stairs and he dumped it in a pharma lab ruining a batch of whatever meds they were making. That one was costly.

The bigger question is whose idea was it to put an hidden tank under the stairs, lol
