Delta's main computer system went down early this morning, and Delta announced that it was canceling flights world wide until they bring the computers back up. Delta claims a power failure at their main computer site caused the outage. And stranded passengers all around the world.
Question for you Delta. Where was the back up generator at your site? In the Air Force we had diesel backup generators for crucial stuff, the tower, the radar approach control, the runway lights, the instrument landing system, the electronic navigation aids. Where was Delta's backup power for this absolutely crucial computer system?
