Floppy disk drive in the Boeing 747
If you want to take control of the aircraft via the entertainment system, you can try that for a long time. The expert also looked around in the belly of the 747. Lomas also saw no open ground for attack here: You couldn’t just pull out a few cables and plug them in to gain control over the wired systems. The Boeing 747 still had a surprise in store: A 3.5-inch floppy disk drive from the 1990s? and the plane actually relies on the ancient medium. It is part of the navigation device of the 747. Every four weeks, floppy disks feed new data into the system so that the steel bird navigates the passengers to the correct airport.
