Hi Peter

On the World Aero Data website, when looking up most Russian airports. For example: UMMM Minsk you click on runway ID 12/30, then down beside heading "Lighting System" it has LIRL BF. I know LIRL is "Low Intensity Runway Lights" but what is BF. Then there are others BP, BO, O, J. I have tried searching other websites without much luck.

Regards

Hi Kim,
I think I am close, but still searching.

Approach landing systems.
· IACC Type J (Calvert, UK).
· IACC Type O (Centerline High Intensity, EUR).
· IACC Type BF (Centre Row RCAF, Canada).
· IACC Type BP (Centre & Double Row Interrupted Modified Calvert.
· IACC Type BO (Centre Row Modified Calvert, Canada).

These are all defined and illustrated in the NGA Flight Information Handbook. Lighting systems start on page B-31. The current one is here [164.214.2.62]

Also thanks Shane.
I found the right ones on [www.aechelon.com] but yours are better.
Will add them to my other 7000 abbreviations.

I’d like to say this company a great big thank-you; due to them and their new invention of portable signal lights I could solve the issue with the private airfield organization. [solutions4ga.com]
