Beacon warns on weather.

The 911th Airlift Wing weather warning beacon lets flightline personnel know when severe storms are approaching. The precision lightning system detects Electric Field Mill or lightning strikes and sends out an alert when the strikes occur within 17-miles. The PLS provides flightline personnel time to take appropriate action.
