Landing light

Somebody found this in the woods in mid Norway. What type of aircraft does this landing light belong to?

It's not one I recognise. How do you know it's a Landing Light? If there are any numbers on it, post those. Part number may help identify type but some lamps are used on several types.

I can't say what it is from, but I do not think it is off an Airbus or Boeing.

Light Assy

Any parts numbers or info on the otherside? if so a google search should tell you what it is but maybe not what plane uses it.
It looks in very good condition to have fallen from a plane.

4553 is just the lamp. Not seen that housing on any types I've worked on.

Do you have a photo of the backside?

Have not seen anything like that on A320/321/330.

Since found in mid Norway, and looks quite modern; I would guess a military aircraft?

Trying to work out the function of the two small amber lights.

Looks like a sidelight off a skidoo with built in LED indicator.

Aero 1, if you look at the top left corner of the Forum index, there is a button that says "New thread" Click on that button.,

It is considered to be impolite to ask questions of a different topic within a running thread.

The filament is a B747 series wing scan light, from distant memory. No idea about the housing but given it's 28V, I'd guess it has been co-opted into some kind of commercial service.

4553 common part number. Check housing p/n

GE4553 is a common part number for Boeing sealed beam filaments. The housing will narrow it down. There is probably a part number on that. It doesn't look like it is off a 737,747,757,767 or 777 if that narrows it down a bit. I think most of these types use that filament as a runway turnoff light or taxi light, but not in that housing.
