    No advice on your PS, Kermit. I have a lowly Priivate with a mere 289 hours. 
    And those from 27 years ago. :-)
    
    Very interesting info re Airbus and Boeing strobes. I live near the San Diego 
    N-S flight paths; It will be fun to be able distinguish between the birds.

    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 ?
