Vintage video: Maastricht UAC in 1995

A video made in the mid-90's showing how a flight from London to Berlin was processed and handled by MADAP - the Maastricht Data Processing and Display System. Developed on-site since the early seventies, it became what was probably the most advanced ATC system in world, still years ahead of what a lot of other providers are using today.

The screens were updated in 2002, when Maastricht UAC moved to a new Operations Room (video of that coming later). The paved the way to split MADAP into an ODS (Operator Input and Display System) and a dedicated FDFS (Flight Data Processing System, which was brought online in December 2008)
