Aircraft Strobe and beacon Lights

Does anyone else think think strobe and beacon lights should blink in the patterns like they do for individual aircraft in real life?


I thought the already did.

No they all blink identically. In real life, certain planes strobes may blink twice, or only once. However in IF they all blink twice.

For example, the 737-900 some 767-300s, 787 and 747-8 have one long flash like this:

on off…on off…on off


Interesting. Didn’t know it.

Thanks for the example.

Mad Max Sez: Give me a break! I’m going to bring Mr. Peanut out of retirement if these asinine space filler continue to be generated repeatedly! Let keep it relevant, mature and post worthwhile topics shall we!


I think it would really cool if we had realistic lighting


Just wonder I we can get a chance to have tail strobe light also…we just have wing strobe light now

I hope they take note and implement this with the 787.

PS: Tail Strobe!
