I posted this question to rec.travel.air, but got no response. I figure this newsgroup is more appropriate. Here goes: Excuse me for being so technical, but a couple weeks ago when I was at DCA, I noticed that on, for example, the 727 the red anti-collison lights were the strobe type. Simple, right? But wait. On some other 727's, were the rotating-beacon types of anti-collison lights. This prompted me to come to a theory that customers opt for a certain type (strobe or rotating beacon) of anti-collison lights when they buy their planes. Now, why would they do this? What are the pros and cons of each? Just a nagging little detail that has been on my mind these past days... -Jackson D. Busenbark firstname.lastname@example.org Gallaudet University Washington, D.C.
