Hi all... I saw a post about red and green lighs in the wings. I want to ask about the two red lights, that are situated usually between the wings and the nose, and are continuously "revolving" when the aircraft is about to move: what are they for ? Well... see you. Bye

There are usually other clues that the engines are on. I mean, if you saw a 757 cruising along at 35,000ft would you need to look for flashing red lights? - hey, I got one of those Smiley things without even trying.
But seriously, they're to stop other planes flying into them and to stop baggage handlers from banging their heads on them.
