Aircraft landing light. The light consists of a large round green unit housed behind a transparent acrylic glass bordered by 3 sides, the lower end being open. The light has a solid round glass front which holds the large filament and light emitting diode. The lamp is capable of 600 watts at 28 volts. There is a number 4559 printed on the centre. On the back are two 5-pin connectors which run into the light housing through 5 insulated wires. On the back is a toothed semi-circular wheel which probably serves as a swivel arrangement for the light.
