While driving past DFW one nighty last week I stopped to watch a jet approaching landing on the west side runways. I just thought it was unusual instead of wing tip strobe lights this aircraft had a white light on each wingtip that look like it was winking at you. Both lights did this in tandem. As the jet past overhead I noticed it was a Cathay Pacific A340. I was just curious if there are some A netters on here that work for Cathay and can explain if these are the new LED type anti-collision lighting. Thanks.

I know the 787 and a lot of different newer bizjets have those kinds of wingtip anti colision lights that are white and flash slowly. I assume the 747-8 might too because it came out same time as 787. There are a couple Delta 757s that have the LED red anti collision lights on the bottom of the fuselage.
