Comment CERN LHC Wiring (Score 1) 169

When the U.S. Air Force upgraded the electronics in its B-52 fleet several years ago, they removed a ton, literally, of old cabling in each aircraft. These were left over from previous upgrades and most were not even connected at either end. The civilian workforce at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma probably still includes some old-timers who remember how that was done. Having them advise the CERN workforce will definitely be cheaper than hiring Boeing, etc., to do this job.
