The green light should be a indication that this APU is turn on. (Not running.)

See if your colleague is in the cockpit, and you are behind the APU doing some work, you would certainly like to know whether this APU is on and ready to ignite.

A visitor from - posted Thu January 19, 2012:
Great pic! And indeed El Al has missile defense systems on all of its aircraft although I don't know where it's installed so I'm not sure if the green light has something to do with it.

A visitor from - posted Mon August 29, 2011:
Cool photo..I doubt very mutch that it has any surface to air missile defence systems on a commercial airliner. Lol I hope that guy was kidding.

A visitor from Germany posted Sat February 19, 2011:
The APU inlet is on the top-right side of the fuselage right infront of the apu, if I'm not mistaken. hardly ever saw such a clean 747 tail cone...

A visitor from - posted Sun May 23, 2010:
Hehe that would make one bright flash

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun May 16, 2010:
Excellent detail! The APU wouldn't normally be operated during the flight, the main engine generators provide more than enough power (and heat!). The inlet for the APU is through a small hatch positioned on top of the fuselage next to the base of the tail fin.

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 28, 2010:
I think that green light is actually a laser for defeating portable surface to air missiles. It would make sense since the APU releases heat and the missile could possible lock onto the heat signature. But then again I may be wrong though.

Looks new.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon November 23, 2009:
I like that big strobe! I want one to put on my bike hee hee. Great and unsual pic! A nice change from the usual. Give us more :-)

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 23, 2009:
Thats pretty interesting, but where does it intake air?

A visitor from Germany posted Sun November 22, 2009:
Interesting close-up

A visitor from United States posted Sun November 22, 2009:
Oh, if it's on, you will know it. no green light needed!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun November 22, 2009:
Wow! That really shows me the size if the 747...and they've even thought of putting a green light on, I'm guessing to tell someone the APU is in use?
