  • Description

    A.C.A.B. SPOKESMAN SAID LAST NIGHT THAT THE AIRLINER WAS TRYING TO LAND ON A RUNWAY LACKING APPROACH LIGHTS. IRONICALLY, LA-GUARDIA AIRPORT WILL SHORTLY HAVE INSTALLED A NEW APPROACH-LIGHT SYSTEM CALLED E.F.A.S. -- (EFAS - CQ) -- ELECTRONIC FLASHING APPROACH SYSTEM. IT WILL BE SIMILAR TO THIS ONE RECENTLY INSTALLED AT MIDWAY AIRPORT IN CHICAGO. (place - source)
    IN FOG, THE STROBE LIGHTS OF THE SYSTEM LITERALLY SEND A BRILLIANT "BALL OF FIRE" RACING TOWARD THE RUNWAY ... GUIDING THE PILOT. IT DEVELOPS 30-MILLION CANDLEPOWER AND CUTS THRU THE THICKEST OF FOG. THIS SYSTEM WAS DEVELOPED BY SYLVANIA ELECTRIA.

    IN ADDITION, R.C.A. ANNOUNCED YESTERDAY THAT IT HAS DEVELOPED AN ELECTRONIC CONTROL SYSTEM TO ASSURE SAFE LANDINGS. CIRCUITS ARE BURIED IN RUNWAYS....CIRCUITS WHICH LITERALLY SENSE THE PRESENCE -- AND -- POSITION -- OF AIRPLANES.
