There is a procedure to carry out ground receptacle checkout procedure in TO 00-25-172- TECHNICAL MANUAL. GROUND SERVICING OF AIRCRAFT AND STATIC GROUNDING/BONDING. This technical order applies to all USAF aircraft ground servicing operations and it states that the electrical resistance between receptacles and clean aircraft skin shall be 1 ohm or less.

What is the intent of this check? why is the consequence if the reading is more than 1 ohm? Is it too stringent to set it at 1 ohm? Is this check carried out for aircraft as well?

OK, lets see....

Q: What is the intent of this check? A: To keep the aircraft from blowing up.
Q: why is the consequence if the reading is more than 1 ohm? A: The plane will blow up.
Q: Is it too stringent to set it at 1 ohm? A: No, if you don't the plane will blow up.
Q: Is this check carried out for aircraft as well? A: Yes, if you don't it will blow up.

Hope that helps. :devil:
