Ordered a new blue replacement indicator light to replace the green one that came with the new glideslope computer. The later was identical to my single gear down and locked indicator, which is mounted almost out of sight. You can see my concern.

I paid $35. For this little thing, and when I installed it prior to yesterday’s Angel Flight, it didn’t work. When I woke up this morning, I realized that the BULB wasn’t included!! Made the switch again – to a blue lense – and it worked.

Then I found out my mechanic has a bagful of extra ones laying around. Oh well. The learning continues.

Fully retired now, unless something interesting comes along. I’ve enjoyed a lucrative career as an Electrical Engineer, Certified Software Solutions Developer, and Project Manager. An excellent and fun career that I’m very proud of. I began flying commercially in Dash-8 aircraft for Piedmont Airlines, and moved on to instruct in the Gulfstream 280; WestWind; and Astra jet aircraft. I’ve also been blessed with a type rating in the B-25 bomber in a fortunate turn of events. My wife, Beverly, and I currently own and operate a beautifully restored PA30 Twin Comanche, which we use to explore the CONUS.
