It was a 767-200. On climbout the crew got an EEC status message and
instead of unlatching the EEC switches - at that time mounted right above
the fuel switches, since moved to the overhead panel - went for the
shut-off switches. Airplane continued to CVG with the RAT out and
passengers in life vests. Major brain cramp on the part of the crew.
