Runway Lights on in Daylight IMC?

Recommended Posts

When an airport reports IMC (less than 3sm/1,000 ceiling), even when it's daylight the tower will turn on runway lights and the rotating beacon. I know that FS2002 never portayed this and only had runway lights after the end of daylight. Is this the same in FS9? I thought I read here that runway lights could be set to come on in daylight IMC, but I can't find the post so I most likely imagined it :)Thanks,Bruce.

It was *always* like that, in lo vis, regardless day or night, runway lights will come on!! This is since I can think, at least I'm sure it was already the case in FS98...

Hi all,Thanks for the replies. I'm not somewhere where I can try this at the moment, but maybe I'm really losing it :). I could have sworn that I had set up FS9 wx to be IMC and the lights remained off.I need a vacation from bean counting, I think!Thanks again,Bruce.
