Beth, as you note, it was a potentially dangerous situation.  It could also have been expensive for the Air Force.  That equipment is very expensive and complex.  Finding issues with it would have been costly.

It is interesting how construction problems come up in almost any project.  Even though the contractors work to code, there are often problems like those discussed here.  Perhaps there needs to be some sort of acceptance testing defined.

Water and electricity--not a good combination. Nice detective work and good thing you resolved the problem in fairly short order. Seems like it was a recipe for a far more dangerous situation.
