that's one of many reasons that I try to persuade folks not to use those tables unless they have to or they really want to replicate navigation from the "disco era".
But Frank, it’s a nostalgia thing. We can’t bottle that unique mixture of AVTUR, rubber, ozone, sweat and a couple of other odours, but we can rescue the tables from eBay, often with recognisable aircraft registration numbers still marked on the front, and tell-tale, well-thumbed pages inside, reminders of days and flights never to be repeated that seem like they took place only yesterday.
