Runway lights question
This may seem like a silly question, but bear in mind I've never stood on a real runway before to see these in action, plus... the lighting effect on the simulator is "virtual" and therefore the lights are not actually in the way of the airplanes. So from this perspective, my question is marginally legit:
Regarding the runway lights that are actually in a plane's path (not the ones off to the edges), my question is how do large jets land without cracking/crushing/breaking the lenses of the lights on the ground with their tires?
