Mobile airport lighting RAF
(Portable Airfield Lighting )

Mobile/transportable airport lighting system was designed:

1) To světlotechnickému security of airport landing areas/runways, which were not equipped with a stable světlotechnickým system.

2) where was installed a stable světlotechnický system served as a backup or replacement in case of a failure.

Kerosene lamps "Goose necks"
(Gooseneck paraffin flares)

Kerosene lamps, known as "Goose necks" (Gooseneck) have been manufactured in many designs and volume.

The basis was a metal container for kerosene and throat with a wick.
When the volume of 18 l (2 gallon) lamp burned for approximately 6 hr.
The deployment on both sides of the runway at spacings of 90 m with the fact that at the beginning of the tracks were duplicated.

Outside their own "line" around the runway have been deployed to indicate the direction of landing and the point of contact - the so-called "T".

Distinguished also the emergency landing strip ("Emergency strip") in the number of min. 6 of the lamp at spacings of 90 m.

At the airports were "Goose necks" are used sometimes along with a rechargeable lamp "Glim"(see. photo).
In the later period then these cordless lamps have replaced the "Goose necks" completely (on the bc. the type of LE 58).

Sodium signal type "FF"
(Sodium Flarepath type "FF")

Sodium signals excelled the high "intensity" and was mainly used to "highlight" the next light safety equipment - ed. signals intercept system, to indicate the beginning/the boundaries of the landing area or "loading" in the landing series ("ob" 2 or 3 - in pitches 180 or 270 m).
("Full of" sunshine set to 15 after turning on)

The power was used by the airport network or generator. The ensemble was controlled from a desk at the flight control ("tower") or a mobile habitat management flights ("caravanu").

the Electrical signal type "G"
(Electrical Flarepath type "G")

The signal was referred to as the light of the "low/moderate intensity" (low/medium intesity)and was intended for the airport without a stable lighting.
The source was the airport's electrical grid or a generator.

the Electrical signal type "H"
(Electrical Flarepath type "H")

a) Directional signals of high intensity runway edge and threshold partitions.
Signals were used in different combinations:
- unidirectional
- obousměrové (most often a combination of green/red for signaling the permission/prohibition)
- obousměrové with všesměrovým

b) the Omni-directional signals of high intensity runway edge (white)

c) the Omni-directional signal (red)
low-intensity - approach system, mark. barriers and under.

Diskuse
According to witnesses who "underwent" pilot training at LU Prostějov, "Goosenecks" were used in "night flying" (which were also the case before 10 pm) in our air force in the early fifties.


From our own experience ("teaching" the means of security services), the "Goosenecks" in our air force were actually replaced by the deployment of the Soviet system LUČ-1.
