AAR lights, Both Probe Light and Basket


Recommended Posts

Hey just recently I noticed that the basket on the 135MPRS there is no light on the basket itself for AAR at night. I recall there actually being a light on the basket. Am I remembering correctly? Also, I recall a probe light...is that no longer the case?

Probe light exists. The basket light is not a thing, as of this video. Though, I assume it may be a thing for a different variant of the 135. I know there is a boom light, though.

as a "thing," I meant was it implemented in the HB Tomcat? Great video BTW, thanks for RL info.

Yes, turn on and look outside with F2, it's very dim.
