The expanse of white foam not only filled the hanger on Saturday but it spilled out onto the tarmac where the wind blew puffs of it into the air like a snow storm.

The Philadelphia Fire Department was called out to to clean up the mess. There was no word on any damage to the helicopter inside the hanger.
