When I was spotting in Dorval (YUL/CYUL) I noticed that regular visitor CN-RGA (RAM Boeing 747-428) had 6 landing lights on the wings (3 on each side) instead of 4 on other 744's.

internal mirror on this 744 on the 2 wings are not lights.
you must know that this aircraft can have the Maroc's president on board, it's that why it is equiped on each aft pylons and APU exhaust with a lure's device in order to avoid any launched rockets.
these 2 stuff on the leading edge are 2 air intakes for a unknown device.
