    Either a VASI or a PAPI, used as a visual indicator of an aircraft's position on the glide path for the runway.

    Glide path indicators
     
  • @flyxna (13 dni)
    @pilotplatt @labigmike @scottbenedict1 That is correct! This picture is of a PAPI light. PAPI stands for Precision Approach Path Indicator. There are four banks of lights, each bank has three lights. They are located on either end of the runway. The lights are directional and show two different colors, red and white. If the glide slope is to high you will see more white lights then red. If the glide slope is to low you will see more red lights. The ratio of red and white lights depends on your angle. On a proper glide slope you will see an equal number of red and white lights.

It's gloomy and rainy here at XNA today. So here is a nice sunset photo to brighten the day. So, what makes the perfect sunset picture?

    The grooves in a runway were designed to expedite the drainage of water from the surface of a runway. NASA tried a rough surface like a low grit sandpaper. The "sandpaper" like quality was found to increase the tire wear on planes. So, NASA devised a solution which you see today as groves in a runway and some major interstates.
