Having a little bit of trouble following your line of "thinkking", here....Ram
Can you help?
Here is what youysaid, about the YT video, uploaded and posted there, that you linked into the post I'm referring to here:
this one does the same thing... But that would be impossible for you people to see, wouldn't it?
You better call the HQ...
I really, really hate to burst your buble...IF you are a "fan" of Alison the Orb Queen...but---you aren't taking THAT video seriously, are you?
Tell me you're just joking?
(Sarcasm doesn't always convey well, in an Internet forum..so I am asking...)
AFTER WATCHING, I
can say with 100% confidence, and accuracy, it is AN AIRPLANE!!!
(And, for any 'lurkers' or casual readers, go watch again...if you didn't catch on the first time...)
OK..watching again? Good...
Start of video....those flashing white lights?? Those are called STROBE LGHTS. They are installed normally on the wingtips. The patterns, the style
of flash pattern, will vary between different airplane types.
THAT airplane (and I am, of course, unable to tell what kind it is) had the distinctive pattern you saw...one wing, flash-flash-flash, then the other,
flash-flash-flash in rapid succession. Alternating.
Generally, when I see apattern like that I immediately think "Business Jet".
Because most commercial passenger jets flash BOTH wingtips in unison.
NOW, the other bit...a few seconds in?? LANDING LIGHTS. These are the lights that are almost always mounted somewhere on the wings. Think of them
in the same way as you would the HEADLIGHTS of your car. Because, THAT is their function, primarily. To light up the 'road' (runway) for takeoffs
It is, however, customary and prudent to turn them on IN FLIGHT as well, as a visual aid to OTHER airplanes. They increase the visibility of YOU to
others around you. We even use them in DAYTIME!!! In the airline business, the place we turn them on/off is usually 10,000 feet, sometimes 18,000.
SOME jets have lights that retract (like a Corvette, say) so we don't turn them on until lower, and at slower airspeeds...
Alison is seeing airplanes, pure and simple. End of story.
That's why everyone
s at her. BUT, we also :shk: at here, because she's dangerous.
