One of these days, we are going to come across one of these actually in use!

Figure 365 days in a year with 12 hours of daylight. If it burned for an hour then there must be a 1 in 4380 chance of finding one.

Maybe two thirds of that to eliminate the northern latitudes during the winter.

So about 1:3000 chance.

Since we have multiple imagery of many airports (GM, YM, LL, BEV) it might be as low as 1:2000.

We have 1700 airports so far and many more must have been inspected.

Then again a lot of the airports that have already been inspected probably have new imagery.

Then again many of the airports are too low res in GM too tell if they are training.

I think we'll probably see one of these being used in the next year at this rate.
