lucksi: While this is very cool, why do you need lights for takeoff? It's not like the runway has corners now, no?

Or was the plane totally without light too?


It was likely an unimproved strip, meaning dirt or gravel with no markings. Kind of hard to stay headed down the middle without those.... unless you have some sort of edge lighting.
