Thanks to Jim Ostrich and Benton Air Center, Benton (O85) has a couple of new tools useful to pilots:
*There's now a weather station on the field, showing temperature, wind speed & direction and more. Here's the link.
Be sure to refresh your browser and be sure you're looking at current information. Keep in mind, this is not a substitute for a weather briefing or other official information.
*You can also listen to local aviation radio traffic from O85, RDD and local Oakland Center communications via liveatc.com
