These two views, above and below, show Bundaberg FSU on 30 April 1986. The operators are Sylvianne Robins, above, and Col Dines, below. Both are seated at the FIS 1 position. The FIS 1 and FIS 2 functions could be combined when traffic permitted.

Note the overhead map display showing a World Aeronautical Chart (WAC) terrain map with a superimposed overlay showing airspace organisation. Pilots would have liked such an overlay too, as in those days airspace organisation information had to be transferred to the WAC from the Visual En Route Chart (VEC) by hand.
