Title: NCR 390
Post by: RetrospectUK on June 15, 2008, 10:26:24 pm
The NCR 390 Visible Record Computer was the predecessor of the NCR 500 series. It was selected by the US military for front line support use having been tested by dropping it by parachute in an army lorry from a transport plane. It worked as soon as they plugged it in to the generator lorry.

I have posted a film of the 390 in operation on the UK NCR history website at www.ncr.org.uk  (http://www.ncr.org.uk)

I hope that you enjoy it.
