Link Room Display Part III ……..
Continuing with our Link Room displays we also have two more areas of interest, these are:
Under the benches lining the gangways is a collection of Navigation equipment ranging from compass, map and watch, through WW2 electronics such as GEE and Loran to almost current equipment.

When the area is operating there is a virtual radar display showing commercial flights in the area as symbols on a map and a list of activity over the last hour or so. Military flights show identity but not position. There is much more up there than you realise.
