Our "high-tech" 21st Century Air Force??

From today's publication of Air Force Magazine. Look very carefully at what Lt. Hunt is using to boot up his Minuteman missile command post...an 8-inch floppy disk! How can we run a world-class 21st Century strike force with stuff Radio Shack dumped as obsolete two decades ago?

No doubt familiar with far more modern technology, Lt. Hunt probably had to be shown how to insert the floppy after his instructor finished explaining what it was and waited for the laughter to subside.
On the other hand security is probably enhanced by the fact these have to be the only 8-inch floppy drives left in the entire world!
