In August of 2003 we obtained the main control panel of the FAA 360-9020E Triplex computer from New Beginning Antiques, Highlands Ranch, CO.. Photographs of its installation will soon be posted. IBM announced the IBM 360/65 model in 1964, the first deliveries were in 1966.
The Master panel on display was part of a IBM 360 9020E FAA flight
traffic control system
from 1971-1993. The computer was part of a
triplex processor system in order to gain reliability through
redundancy. It has some extra lights and switches to control Radar
inputs and also to allow Customer Engineers (CE) to take
components off-line for maintenance.
