What is the rabbit pilots refer to when landing?
You better go look again... "rabbits" are SFL or Sequential Flashing Lights, also known as Runway Alignment Lighting System (RAIL).dwstl2327 said:well I dont mean to sound like a dork eagle, and yall do have a lot more experience than me, and your answer is pretty good....
but the "wabbits" help transition from the Localizer (what tells you to go left and right on the ILS) to the centerline of the runway visually.
the REIL's help pick out runway from other lights and they are really really annoying strobe lights on the side of the runway.
the dork signing off...
PS. thats an awesome answer ToT! bout peed my pants laughing
Go shoot a couple of ILS to mins; all you need is a little "MASLR-Bation" and you'll snap out of it...right as rain.Metro752 said:I hit a possum tonight. Cornfields on the left and right, out in the middle of no where headed to the middle of no where home. Silly little possum comes out in front of me, traffic oncoming. Sorry little buddy. First time I killed an animal, a racoon, I felt so bad I felt like I needed to go to confession. They I went out and forgot all about the poor little racoon.
