Air Show in Preston Idaho
On August 2nd, 2014, they held an airshow to raise funds to extend the runway. After nearly a year of preparations, the show was on. But, they lacked basic wind instruments. My beautiful daughter helped me set up an MS-130 a couple of days before. This station was connected to Weather Underground through the embedded cell phone and also provided SMS text message weather reports.
I would have loved to catch more video of the show, but I sat with the air boss, receiving quantitative wind data that was relayed to the pilots throughout the event. It was a great experience and added a level of sophistication to a small Idaho airport.
