There are two types of A380 pilots: those who use Wing Lights and those who don't. Some people seem to think staying dark saves fuel, whereas I reckon we should give all other aviators (including the Yellowed Bellied Sap Suckers) the best possible chance. Days like today, with a high speed, 700 kph dash over Melbourne's eastern suburbs, they need all the help they can get. They also help oncoming pilots notice the aircraft type, so they can plan for the wake that descends at 500 feet per minute.
