Digibarn Calculators & Computation Devices:
During a 2007 open house at the Digibarn Computer Museum, Dan Eggerding and Janek Kaliczak, both pilots, explained how our recently donated E6-B (9) flight computer works and is used to fly airplanes. A fascinating look into a class of "mechanical" computer still in wide use (hey, it doesn't have batteries that run out)! Listen to Dan and Janek describing the E-B in our Digibarn Radio audio piece and see them handling the E6-B below. From the Wikipedia entry for the E6-B Flight Computer:
