This is a marker beacon located on the belly of the aircraft.

1) I think the photo may be deceiving you: that may be a white, not a red light;

2) If I'm right, I think there's an optional rear navigation light (white) just above the APU, and a rear strobe.

KLM 744's have both.

Cheers,
Alexander.
