Why's it got a red light on one wing and a green on the other Dad?

It's for the Navigator Son, as long as he can see one on each side he knows he is on course....

.The POINT of having binoculars is that with them, you cannot see the whole plane at once, and the bits you can see dance around. Indispensible.

I did double-check. It says right here: "Red throated yellow bellied warblers are prevalent in air fields across northern Europe."

Hold on (adjusts reading glasses) maybe that's "airy fields."
