The I-Team recieved a complaint from several Air Traffic Controllers at DFW-Airport claiming they were having a very difficult time seeing aircrafts on radar. At any given time controllers may have 500 to 1000 aircrafts on their screen. The problem is old monochrome monitors where an aircraft appears as a tiny dot on the screen, making it impossible to seperate one plane form another.
