The Lotus L-39 features a totally unique and extremely effective new landing light system, one that actually properly illuminates the ground, allowing you to find your way in the dark. This is not an attached halo effect but an integral part of the aircraft, one which must be seen in action to be fully appreciated. The landing lights alter their intensity smoothly and accurately with the time of day, being very powerful at night, less so during dawn or dusk periods, and realistically ineffective during daylight. They also correctly illuminate raindrops that fall directly in front of them when flying in poor weather. Even the strobe lights illuminate the ground correctly whenever they flash.
