At the top of the menu you can see the current runway operations (as tracked by ADS-B on predefined arrival and departure routes), the last aircraft tracked and how long the current arrival or departure runway is open since the last change. Normally you can already see an approaching flight once it has been stabilised on the ILS. Departing flights can be seen once airborne. Furthermore in the middle part of the menu you will see the current wind components on the runways: headwind (positive values), tailwind (negative values) and the crosswind component. If there is a favoured runway direction based on the current wind conditions, an arrow will show the best operations direction.
