Chapter 157 of the EAA is based at Benton Field, O85, at the north end of the Sacramento Valley. Monthly dinner meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30PM at our Quonset hut clubhouse at Pleasant and South Streets at the northwest corner of the airport.
From the Chapter 157 archives, here's a brief history of the first 60 years of Benton Field (Airpark). It was written in the 1980's by an unknown author, so we can't attest to the accuracy. It's an interesting read. Click here.
