The Hollywood Sign


Recommended Posts

is featured in Microsoft FSX Deluxe Edition. A Bell Jet Ranger looks toward Burbank, California at night.bdb_zpsyvx7ipzg.png

Um yeah, I stopped counting after flying past it 500 times in one summer alone. That said, it's not lit at night.....its as dark as possible!

Could a GOOD helicopter light illuminate the HoWo sign?

Maybe, but I'm sure the neighbors wouldn't appreciate it.

Often it's only a question of range. A "Night Sun", 30-40 million focus-able, directable candlepower could put light on it from quite a distance, but the sign might night be visible to the crew. Haze, clouds, dust, all reflect light, so all you see is a bright cone surrounded by darkness until you get close when it's at all murky. If it's clear, and if you get close enough, any searchlight will do it.
