Hi Ian,To my knowledge both the Classic and NG retractable lights should only be used below 250kts.

Forgot to add, just in case."Retractable Landing: (NG only) Replaces the outboard landing lights on the earlier series. These are located on the fuselage just beneath the ram air intakes. Note Use of both of these lights should be avoided at speeds above 250kts due to excessive air loads on their hinges. "Bruno Francescoli.

Thanks, guys... I'll be sure not to use the retractable ones when flashing my lights at oncoming traffic in cruise ;-)Cheers.Ian.
