Branch County Memorial Airport (ICAO: KOEB, FAA LID: OEB) is a county-owned, public-use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) west of the central business district of Coldwater, a city in Branch County, Michigan, United States. It is included in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2017–2021, in which it is categorized as a local general aviation facility.Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned OEB by the FAA and no designation from the IATA.The airport receives traffic from crop dusting aircraft that spray fields in the area.In 2022, the airport was forced to pay residents living near the airport $16,000 to get them to cut trees near Branch County Memorial runways below a maximum height for safety concerns. The action brought the airport into compliance with the federal 1970 Airport Control Ordinance to protect approaches to runways at airports.

This app shows satellite views of random airports. Its aim is to introduce you to the variety of airport structures embedded into the landscape.
This app is based on the Google Maps API, which on the one hand provides a powerful programming interface for web-based mapping applications, and on the other hand opens access to high quality satellite imagery for places all over the world.
The backend is realized in Python with the help of the excellent Flask micro framework.
The locations of airports have been imported from the public domain data provided by the aviation enthusiasts at OurAirports.com. The app displays randomly selected airports of the categories 'large_airport','medium_airport' and 'small_airport' for which runway coordinates are available.
Furthermore, the user interface incorporates icons from Font Awesome and fonts from Google Fonts.
