He said...
Continental Airlines contracted HP to build a real-time system around
1970, and HP put together a dual-CPU system similar to a 2000A, with a
2116 and a 2114. HP advertised the hardware configuration itself (not
just the software) as the 2005A Real Time Executive. The Contential
configuration is dual-CPU, but the default 2005A configuration in the HP
catalog has only a 2116 and about half the peripherals of the
Continental configuration.
I have never heard of this Continental 2005A dual processor Real Time 
Executive, especially as an official product. Does anyone have more
