Flashing tail light

Postby Werner K » Fri Feb 26, 2016 8:18 am

Hi all,

last night my partner & I were on our way home from a meeting and we detoured to a spot near the airport (YPAD) where we observed a Qantas 737-800 arriving. The light illuminating the tail was flashing on and off so that visibility of the tail was "on & off".

Is there any significance in this such as a message of some kind? It was the first time we have observed this. We have observed the landing lights flashing from side to side on QF 737-800's before when they are on the arrival flight path.

The flight was either QF783 or QF665.

No significance, it is just the logo light flashing in conjunction with the landing lights.
