Throwback Thursday: DFW Airport air traffic controllers in 1978

“D-FW air traffic controllers at work...stress is part of the job.”
“D-FW air traffic controllers at work...stress is part of the job.”

“D-FW Air Traffic Controllers at Work...stress is part of the job,” the caption says on our Throwback Thursday photo.

The photo, which shows air traffic controllers in front of their radar scopes, was taken on November 29, 1978 and was filed for our community/northeast edition at the Star-Telegram.

I couldn’t find any additional information on the article that was published with the photo, but I did enjoy seeing the old telephone cord hanging near one of the controller’s stations.
