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.
