"Landing Lights Extended"?

I found a brief report on 777-300ER flight tests in general and noise measurements in particular:

Besides, on the approach we are measuring what is probably the loudest configuration,” Franken continues. “That means flaps, leading edge slats and landing lights extended, landing gear lowered, and an unfavourable trim condition.”

Landing lights extended? Gear ... I understand, but how can pilots extend landing lights?

Some aircraft have articulated landing lights which fold down to be flush with the skin of the aircraft when not in use.

Cheers,
Fred



I thought I was doing good trying to avoid those airport hotels... and look at me now.

I know DC-9, MD-80-90 & 717s have extending landing lights near the wingtips. Here you can see them down.

The 737s have them under the outer flap guide assemblies. Here they're extended

A lot of planes have extendable landing lights.

In the Cessna 310 there is a switch to turn them on and then to extend them.

Thanks. Somehow I never noticed those lights are often extendable. Embarrassment

The DC-10/MD-11 both have landing lights on the fwd fuselage, the taxi lights are on the gear and turnoff lights are flushmount in the wing fairing. In my operator it is part of the engineer checklist, and if I'm late, I get an earfull because of all the noise! It's what is otherwise known as "self critiquing".

Happy Motoring!

Unless they changed something in production, or it is an airline option....the B777 doesn't have any landing lights that extend.

A300's, A310's have them on the body like DC10's. A320 series aircraft have them under the wings where they meet the body.
