Someone wrote with the following question:


I was a staff sergeant with the USAF as an instructor/operator of the LINK F4c flight simulator. I worked with the installation in Yokoha AFB in 1968 and with the installation at Holloman AFB in New Mexico. I was looking for historical information with some statistics online and cannot find anything. I was trying to remember how many racks/cabinets with synchro servo mechanisms etc and some of the physical properties. In 1969 we installed glass radar plates and electronic countermeasures cabinets. Do you have some kind of description that will recall this equipment that comprised the simulator?


If you have any information about this, please contact Phil Hoeper

If you ever wondered what happened to the old Singer buildings, here is one:
The Link SSD building on Tech Road in Silver Spring was entirely occupied by Singer. Now it is occupied by a number of businesses. Some are Comcast, the Goldfish Swim School (for young kids), and the NPL company (construction support). There is a small sign on one side, saying "DoDSR Loading". This turns out to be the Department of Defense Serum Repository. (11/20/2021)
