Hi!Yes, 7 is for CATII/III ALSF-2 type approach lights and 10 is for CALVERT2 type lights which don't have any strobes. Use StrobesN or StrobesF (of Runway command)to type in the number of flashing lights 0...15. I think 15 works well....can't remember, but it is easy to try it. In real life the flash lights flash twice a second and I think they are even more than 15. Try it, two sequences per second. :-) The sca_rwys.doc that comes with SCASM describes all the commands.Tatu

>No i have the flash working - 15 lights.>It would be nice if it could be more lights than 15, but ...Oh... I see, I think I misunderstood you. ;-) You meant that it would be nice if the strobes would reach all the way to the threshold of the runway? The strobes reach until 300m from the threshold, that's where the red lights begin. They should not span all the way from the beginning of the App.Lights til the threshold. In real life we are talking just few strobes more than 15 (if installed all the way to the red lights) so it shouldn't be a problem. T
