Airport Tower visit

IMG00047-20110307-1733A little while ago I had yet another opportunity to test my love of heights, and what a great time that was Smile.

In the dark of night I had the opportunity to tour this hi tech wonder from bottom to top. Not only did I get to see it, I got to understand how it works, it’s processes, procedures, links, storage and the stringent regulation that surrounds everything that goes on within it’s boundaries.

Not only was this technically fascinating, I found the history and situation with France, UK and Channel Islands aerospace all quite intriguing.

Indeed this was most welcome overview of computing in the Airline industry, I highly recommend this as a visit to anyone regardless of computing knowledge (although some understanding of development, networking, storage and electronics make this truly more awesome)

Thanks to the hosts and of course thanks to our local Charted Institute of IT committee for arranging it.
