Those poor helicopters, buried in the snow. How though? Was a hangar door left open overnight or sometjing?

You call it snow, the Army and the rest of the world calls fire retardant foam system going off lol And a poor PV2 is going have to clean it up lol

I was just about to ask, “How did all of that snow get in there?” Foam retardant makes a lot more sense 😂

I know 😂 that’s why I was really confused haha
So what exactly do they do in this situation? Let it “melt?” What happens?

I’d feel bad for the poor souls who have to clean this up. Like this Topic to pay your respects to the clean up crew.

I mean, they could just use a spoon and eat it all up (and maybe die from chemicals) but hey, its foamy.

Oh dear somethings gone wrong. I totally thought it was snow until you said so.

That seems fun honestly. The soft foam, getting to push it around, etc.

Oh snap, is that one of those fire prevention systems that filled the whole hangar with foam? What is the plan to get it out? 😂
