Abstract: The Airy Transit Circle has been in service at the Royal Greenwich Observatory during more than one hundred years. In 1954 this famous instrument has been put out of operation; its successor is the Cooke Reversible Transit Circle at Herstmonceux. Within the programme of constructing the FK5, the author has investigated the observations made in the period 1915 to 1981 with the two transit circles. The present paper reports on the comparisons with the FK4.
