Forty members of the TNMOC Members' Club enjoyed the Club's second open day on 26th September 2015. The Open Days are an opportunity for members to get behind the scenes at TNMOC and discover more about the museum and its exhibits.
The September open day focussed on the impressive new National Air Traffic Services exhibit. John Linford, a former NATS employee and private pilot, gave a presentation entitled Computers in Air Traffic Control, which looked at the role of air traffic control and the way that computers came to the rescue as air traffic volumes increased rapidly during the 1970s.
Peter Hoath then gave a fascinating practical demonstration of historical eavesdropping devices and the technology used to detect then in a presentation entitled Who is Listening.
We were pleased to welcome TNMOC Chairman Tim Reynolds who gave the members a brief update on the latest plans for the museum.
Two longstanding members, Dave Anders from the USA and Marcus Hind, were recognised for their outstanding contributions to the museum and the formal part of the day concluded with lunch.
The club is always keen to welcome new members. You can find out more here.
