FAA to install runway safety warning system at LAX
27 February 2008

Technology that warns pilots about potential runway safety hazards will be installed at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) under a partnership between the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the City of Los Angeles.

The system, called Runway Status Lights, uses a series of red lights embedded in the pavement to warn pilots if it is unsafe to cross over or enter a runway. Under an agreement between the FAA and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), pilots will begin testing Runway Status Lights at LAX
