Rotating Beacon Light

When flying into Grenoble (LFLS) I noticed what looks like a flat image of a light, white on one side and green on the other, on a building. In real life it is the control tower. Is this a graphical bug?


I believe it’s supposed to be the location of the control tower.

No, that is simply the location of the tower. It activates at night to tell pilots where the tower is so they can avoid it.

No bug, error or glitch here. :)

Also, happy anniversary @RTG113!!

Huh, I guess I just never émotives it before 🤦‍♂️ Thanks, this can be closed.

This is it.

Not quite! It’s not an obstacle light. 🙂

In many cases the rotating beacon is not located where the control tower is. Simply a visual for pilots to locate airports from afar. There are also unique combinations of lights to recognize the difference between civilian airports, military airfields, and seaports from above.
