    That was my normal practice, too, Tom. Take the two brightest things in the
    twilight (other than an Airbus) with a decent bearing spread and get a
    handful of sights of each. Time is limited at dawn and dusk. Better to get
    three each of two than one each of three.

    Well said, Hewitt ! If definitely Statistics can be of some help, that is certainly because it is (much) better and reliable to shoot 5 sights of each of 4 different bodies than to shoot 20 different bodies with only one sight of each ...

    PS : You mentioned "Airbus" in the sky ... The main differences between Airbus and Boeing are -1- They do not spell the same, and -2- the Boeing strobe lights are "single flashing" while the Airbus ones are "double-flashing" which enables you to easily single out them in the dark, and -3- for having flown both, I have to say that Boeing A/C are (much) more Pilot friendly, while Airbus are (definitely) more complex on a Pilot standpoint. Any other advice here ?
