More than just wires – Part 2

The second photo shows the beginnings of an Indy Car engine wiring harness. Look at those connectors. This is aerospace technolgy and a long way from the very basic and crumbling wiring harness and ancient connectors in my 1971 2.2 Porsche 911. It also makes me think about the state of wiring on many of the old planes still in service around the world. I remember getting onboard an American Airlines DC9 about ten years ago and seeing a plate in the door aperture showing that it had been built 35 years before. Best not to think about the state of the wiring on that one.

As well as being interesting technically these are actually good photos.Thanks James
