The photo was taken in July, 1990 when the SOC building was first occupied in Fort Worth, TX. In 2013 the name was changed to the IOC building when MOC relocated from Tulsa. In the forground is Dispatch, but the majority of the workstations and employees are Crew Scheudlers. The room in the back was a smoking room, Motorolla radio/telephone turrets were built into the Knoll furniture, with a small monitor displaying calls. The larger monitor displayed Macintosh computer Sabre emulator programs. Note that the printers are under the worksurface, covered by a plexiglas cover with a slit for the continous feed paper to pass through. The SOC was remodelled in 2001 to make room for TWA from Saint Louis, and again in 2013 to make room for MOC departments from Tulsa. This facilities last day as IOC will be mid-August, 2015, as a new facility has been built at the same Flight Academy / SRO campus to house the combined American Airlines and USAirways departments.
