Randolph Airfield Lighting System
Posted by: RChin ()

Does anyone have any idea what type of lighting system "E" is? I'm looking at Randolph AFB (KRND), and under 14R and 32L they both have "E" listed as a lighting system and I can't find any info on that. Thanks in advance!

Thx Shane! Though could you tell me what two parallel rows are? I've Googled for that topic and all I can find is a listing of "two parallel row" with no explanation of what it is or what it looks like. It links me to "FACC, Annex B, LFA:113" and in there it just lists the two parallel row by name and that is it.

Ok, I found diagrams for the various lighting systems. The one in question is on page 99 (B-35) of the DoD Flight Information Handbook. Sorry, I'm just a mere mortal, so I don't have access to the current version, but here you go (7 Megabytes): [worldaerodata.com]
