Sadly (in my opinion) the Perspex boards on AT sqns went many years ago replaced by a series of computer programs that gave you far less visibility of the plot.

I’m not that convinced that stories about how crewing “was” done on an aircraft that was taken out of service nearly 45 years ago (according to Wiki) are necessarily relevant... 🤔
That would imply that the fundamental process whether presented on a board or a screen has changed, which it hasn’t much - too much short notice tasking competing with too few assets with variable serviceability. It’s a far easier process where most of your tasks are schedules planned well ahead rather than a response to some crisis.
