Default Re: Aviation Question - Nav Lights

bobb - 2/9/2009 5:25 AM

Military aircraft have the same lights as civilian aircraft. If they were on a training mission, they may shut them off IF inside a MOA or within military airspace. If they are in formation, one aircraft within the formation sometimes will keep the anti collision light on, unless they are using NVG's....
I have seen this. The formation lead aircraft maintains his Nav lights while the rest use the anti collision lights only. I'm not saying it is what is right, but it is what happens.
