    NAP, you have had some very extraordinary experiences. Some you know you need not question, you already know the answers. You had a friend who became a murderer merely because he fancied the victim?????? How do you know that?

    NAP,

    What do you mean by "color display" on the jet?

    Modern jets have full-color heads-up displays. The old jets had (usually phosphor green) monochrome heads-up displays.

    yeah, Aragron nailed it. My particular thang were the MFDS ... Multi-function display systems. It had never been colorized and for the sake of 'situational awareness' they wanted color to be able to more easily differentiate between 'symbols', a polite euphemism for targets. That was my designated area 'Symbology'. So I did it ... they took the new plane to Greece for a demo of capability, they liked it. Incidentally, I received a call real-time from one of the trainers telling me that there was a problem and did I have any idea about a workaround. I said yes, it worked, the plane model sold and I scored one of my rare victories. Incidentally, the problem was a legacy (meaning it had been around for a good while before I got there but spotted it as I worked on the colorization).
