Back in the '80s, I worked on the Air Defense computer system at
McChord AFB. One day (fortunately I wasn't working that shift), a hapless
Lieutenant managed to trigger the Halon system in the display room. Not
only did it kill power to the system, but it dropped a set of baffles in
the air conditioning ducts which required about 3 hours to reset.
I suspect his next assignment may have been Adak, Alaska...
