Thanks again,


Sort of correct in that yes the 920 ATC was still fitted but, when we went to the colour Tac Display this included it's own Pentium based computing system (high spec then) which offloaded all of the Display processing from the 920 meaning that in general the system ran a lot more smoothly.

I am sure that there are plenty of former Tac Navs around who can remember the display issues we had as time went on with the old circular CRT.
