Twice in the past 2 days I have observed a business jet flying with its
landing lights flashing on and off in a continuous rhythm.  The first
aircraft was a Hawker 125 on approach.  The flashing became a steady on
when the aircraft was on short final.  The second instance was a Falcon
50, with its lights flashing on and off immediately after takeoff.  I did
not see if they continued flashing.  Could anyone tell me what the
flashing signifies, if anything?
