    Default Painting of Airfield Lights?

    Can't think of any reason why one aperture should be red, and the other yellow. Definitely artistic licence, but pretty.

    A logical reason would be if it contained two lamps, one red and one... er... lime? Not on this type I suspect.

    Make nice driveway fittings with an LED light source though. Where can I get a dozen
