‘Round the Bend

Don’t ask me how I find these things. I just do. I’m like Charles Kuralt, I’ve always got to see what’s just around the bend.

First, for my Australian controller friends, here’s a map of Australian Controlled Airspace and Radar Coverage -- 1967.

And for my friends at Atlanta Center who thought working a radar scope holding an umbrella was a novel experience...

”On one occasion staff wrote to Head Office complaining of having to stand ankle-deep in water due to the rain leaking in. The response was to offer a supply of waterproof coats and gumboots! “

Be sure to check out the “advanced automation” in the picture.
