We should look at getting our fuel prices advertised on Oz Runways. Noticed the function the other day when checking out the app.

Hi James,

You know how sweet it is to have a win :D
Liz and I have been working together for the last 18 months or so to have the Watts Bridge Fuel Price displayed on OzRunways. See below.

For those who may not be aware, you have to enable the display of Fuel Price using the Left Hand Side fly-out menu.
That is also the case for seeing the camera images, they also need to be selected using the menu. See the screen grab below.

Hello Everyone,

We were up at Watts this afternoon when that intense storm passed over the airfield.
Though short in duration, there were wind speeds in excess of 50 knots and a rainfall rate greater than 220mm/hour.
