Why would the drug cartels pay any attention to Arizona or the FAA? This is the desert. There is nobody out here who would care how many light, whether they are rotating, flashing or turned completely off. You are trying to impose laws on the lawless. >>What about Davis-Monthan AFB and the type of craft they may be >>flying - testing for Raytheon. I believe I stated that the >>aircraft was very noisy, as opposed to the almost silent flight >>of UAVs. So, no, it was not one of the two UAVs owned by the >>State of Arizona.

I live in a part of Arizona where people think nothing of going their own way. Sometimes, carrying a gun. >>>Rio Rico is about 9 miles North of the border so I suspect you >>>are located anywhere around that perimeter that allows you to be >>>20-miles from the city without being in Mexico.

The AF uses recognition lights, >clusters of LEDs in muted green and blue/purple pastel shades >that they use to formate on each other during night missions- >particularly military helicopters. Thanks for explaining what is legal, but there are pilots who do not care what is legal. I see many different types of air craft in the skies at night and sometimes during the day. At no time have a seen muted green, blue, purple or pastel shades. Just your basic white, bright green and bright red. >These LEDs should not excite anyone however because they have >very low visibility ( for obvious reasons) and displayed on the >aircraft so as not to be visible from the ground unless they >were 50 feet off the deck in the first place where your lawn sod >being peeled back by jet exhaust would probably tip you off >anyway as to what you were seeing. The lights are displayed as 2 >foot long by 4 inch wide bands at various angles and in >different combinations to identify particular aircraft in a >flight. Thanks for the heads up concerning a system of lights I have not seen. Just to add to my list: the usual helicopter running lights. Of course, accompanied by a loud whirling sound. >They are meant to be lined up with certain marks or structure of >the canopy (or helicopter cabin windows) so as to formate on >each other while flying at night or in marginal weather. Therefore, all of the above means that there were people who could afford to drop $1000 never saw an ET. Just what I thought. Maybe, next time. KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
