Perhaps more recently than one would think. It's not like there were
newer systems they could have used to keep their simulators running
(tho I did see some PCs in the room that may have been performing the
tasks of the older machines?)
I would have loved to have been there at the clean-out. A nice
example of a proper old datacenter, preserved.
Wonder if anyone got the actual simulators/cockpits? Fun toys but
won't fit in your average basement...
