Colorful lights cover taxiways and runways to help pilots navigate the airport. Airport lights are fairly standard around the world, but there are minor regional differences. After an aircraft leaves the gate, the first challenge pilots face is navigating the plane to the runway for takeoff.

According to the International Civil Aviation Organization ICAO , a runway is a "defined rectangular area on a land aerodrome prepared for the landing and takeoff of aircraft ". Runways may be a man-made surface often asphalt , concrete , or a mixture of both or a natural surface grass , dirt , gravel , ice , sand or salt. Runways, as well as taxiways and ramps , are sometimes referred to as "tarmac", though very few runways are built using tarmac. Runways made of water for seaplanes are generally referred to as waterways. Runway lengths are now commonly given in meters worldwide , except in North America where feet are commonly used.

Only the simplest airfields are designed for operations conducted under visual meteorological conditions VMC. These facilities operate only in daylight, and the only guidance they are required to offer is a painted runway centreline and large painted numbers indicating the magnetic bearing of the runway. In order to assist aircraft in approaches and takeoffs and in maneuvering on the ground, such airports are equipped with sophisticated radio navigational aids navaids and visual aids in the form of lighting and marking. The most common form of navaid used for the approach phase of aircraft descent is the instrument landing system ILS. The beam is intercepted by an approaching aircraft up to 24 km 15 miles from the threshold of the runway. Information is given concerning position above and below the glide slope and deviation to the right or left of centreline; consequently, the pilot is able to determine from cockpit instruments a deviation of the aircraft from the proper approach.

Airport and Runway Markings and Lighting

 - Почему же вся переписка Северной Дакоты оказалась в твоем компьютере. - Я ведь тебе уже говорил! - взмолился Хейл, не обращая внимания на вой сирены.  - Я шпионил за Стратмором. Эти письма в моем компьютере скопированы с терминала Стратмора - это сообщения, которые КОМИНТ выкрал у Танкадо.

Экран погас. ГЛАВА 39 Росио Ева Гранада стояла перед зеркалом в ванной номера 301, скинув с себя одежду. Наступил момент, которого она с ужасом ждала весь этот день.

Он ослабил узел галстука и рухнул на стул у ближайшего свободного столика. Казалось, что с той минуты, когда рано утром ему позвонил Стратмор, прошла целая вечность. Сдвинув в сторону пустые пивные бутылки, Беккер устало опустил голову на руки. Мне нужно передохнуть хотя бы несколько минут, - подумал .
