Oh boy...!
Looking at the AED picture sure makes me feel old.
When I began my duty in the Air Defence Radar Site "CRC Crabtree" in 1990 I started working
on old GEAGE II screens (amber, with a sweep...) but we had an Hughs HADAR (3D Radar!) already.

Then I moved up a notch by working in the digital screens of the E-3A (as of 1993), this time screens were
green (monochrome?) and finally in 1996 we got the colour screens! Yeah...way to go!

And now...?
It is even better now...and I feel like a dinosaur! PDT_Armataz_01_04

Happy landings, Bernd
