first question - can we have some provenance for this sighting ?
second question - why are its ` navigation lights ` on the wrong wing tips ????????
maritiime and aioation treaties dictate that vessels must :
Aircraft navigation lights are placed in a way similar to that of marine vessels, with a red navigation light located on the left wingtip leading edge and a green light on the right wingtip leading edge. A white navigation light is as far aft as possible on the tail or each wing tip. High-intensity strobe lights are located on the aircraft to aid in collision avoidance.
Navigation lights in civil aviation are required to be operational and to be turned on from sunset to sunrise. High-intensity white strobe lights are part of the anti-collision light system, as well as the aviation red or white rotating beacon. The anti collision light system (either strobe lights or rotating beacon) is required to be operational and to be turned on for all airplanes built after March 11, 1996 on all aircraft operations.
this leaves 2 possibilities
1 - the aircraft is flying inverted
2 - the hoaxer is a retard
