I was just wondering how the landing zone lights and centerline lights don break when an aricraft passes over. What are they made of?
Found this on google:
Recessed lights are located on the runway's centerline at most large airports. For most pilots, it is initially a bit unnerving to land on these. They are, however, safely situated under protective covers.
When I flew during the day I never really noticed lol. I don't think the other lighting like is recessed though.
I found a spec sheet with an image of one here:http://airportsystems.honeywell.com/pdf/ai...l850a_l_sec.pdf
