A lot of transport category aircraft have taxi lights in/on the nose gear.

I seem to have found one type of aircraft that doesn't.  Smile

So it would seem.

Ok, so maybe not ALL. But aircraft without them are the minority.

A bit of a sidenote, but every airplane that I have seen also has landing lights. Many are fixed in position in the leading edge of the wing. However, some such as the Cessna 300 and 400 series cabin class twins have retractable landing lights that extend down and forward when activated. When deactivated, the movable lamp is flush with the bottom of the wing. That design is somewhat odd compared to most landing light mountings.

The CRJ doesn't have any on the gear either. Two lights in the leading edge wing root and two in the nose cone just below the radar.

Some DHC-8s have them right below the cockpit windows, in the middle. As far as most aircraft having nose wheel lighting this is incorrect as there is a far larger amount of GA aircraft around, which usually have them on the wings/engine cowling.

To be technical, it is just the 200 model that is like that. The 700 and 900 has only one light on the nose gear, not in the radome.

The A320 series wing landing lights are exactly the same.
