Ooops! First Dutch F-35A Accidentally Gets Foam Party Instead of Water Salute

Soumis
 
In an embarrassing gaff by the Dutch military, the first operational F-35A Lightning II for the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNlAF) got coated in firefighting foam instead of water when the aircraft arrived at Leeuwarden Air Base on Thursday. The incident wound up on Redditt.com, where a string of amusing and off-color remarks immediately followed. (theaviationist.com) Plus d'info...

You folks made your own gaffe. A gaff is a fishing tool; a gaffe is a mistake.

That's what I thought, too. Never seen it spelled w/o the "e".

Even funnier is, if you do a Google search for "gaff", what images come up.

Isn't that foam supposed to be pretty corrosive? I.e. really bad for aircraft that aren't on fire?

Highly corrosive, needed a fresh water wash down immediately after exposure.

Looks like someone had forgotten "windshield" wipers. At the price of that superplane.

I think the same thing happened with a Virgin Airlines plane on its maiden flight.

Virgin airlines? Which one? There’s no such thing as virgin airlines!
There is a Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Australia. And there was a Virgin America and Virgin Express.
So, again, which one??🤔🙄

Maybe the firefighters know that the F-35 is a flaming pile of doo-doo, and they were making a statement?
