NIGHT FIELD LIGHTING
BLUE LIGHTS: Blue lights mark all taxiways. There should be blue lights on both sides of the
taxiway.
WHITE LIGHTS: White lights mark the boundaries of the duty runway.
GREEN LIGHTS: Green lights mark the threshold of the duty runway.
RED LIGHTS: Red lights mark all obstructions on the airfield.
ROTATING BEACON: There is a rotating white and green beacon located at fields that are
open for night operations. A military airfield's white light will be split by a three degree void.
This will give the impression there are two separate, closely timed flashes of light. A civilian
airport has a solid white light and can be easily distinguished from a military field.
Memorize the following Air Traffic Control Tower Light Gun Signals (a.k.a. ALDIS lamp
signals). These are standard throughout military and civilian aviation. As the name implies,
these light signals are displayed from a colored light gun in the tower, normally in response to
radio malfunctions.
