Early radar systems
« on: November 25, 2018, 2057 UTC »
Long, long ago, when I was but a wee pup of a tech, one of our senior engineers had some of these hanging on his office wall. I thought they were cool but had not thought of them again until the other night when I was watching a PBS program about the SR-71 Blackbird and The Skunk Works. For some reason, that triggered a flash back and I did a Google search even remembered they were ads for Varian Associates and found that someone(s) has saved them on the internet.
