I dont know but darn it, I am going to give it a try. A friend of mine did exactly that. Many smaller aircraft use regular automotive lamps, so I presume you mean REALLY BIG 28V landing lights. A second or larger 28V alternator and 28V battery is needed. Then you need a relay to turn the things on, since the switches you have won't do the job. When all this is hooked up...Boom! it's daylight. Oh yes, put a basket on the side of your truck for the tickets you will get. When my friend did this he finally got a letter from his draft board classifying him unfit for service in 1964, since he had dozens of tickets.

How would the bulbs shine in a series circiut?

An electric light bulb, incandescant type, is designed to operate at a certain voltage. Let's take 12 volt car headlights for example. Two 12 volt lights are connected in parallel in a car to provide the headlights, the same 2 lights could be connected in series if used on a truck with a 24 volt battery, or 20 of the lights could be connected in series if connected to a 240volt home electric circuit. (In the US think of 10 connected in series on your 110 volt system.) The lights would each produce about the same light output, but the number of lights would cause more light in total. In series there is a problem, when one light failsm they all go out. That's why lights in a house are connected in parallel.

Can an airplane take off on a public road?

If the road is wide enough for the aircraft, then theoretically yes. It's not likely to ever happen, though; what is more likely to happen is an aircraft making an emergency landing on a road, in which case it may take off from the road again afterwards but is more likely to be cut up and transported away on a truck.

When you plug your boat trailer light to your 2006 GMC sierra the lights on the trailer will not come on if you use another truck the lights will work where do you look is it a fuse or a circuit break?

Trailer Lights Work on Other Vehicles but Not MineIF the lights [tail, turn, and brake] are working on your vehicle, AND the trailer lights will work on some other vehicle, that confirms:That the problem is NOT in your vehicle's wiring system.That the problem is either in the trailer wiring, OR is caused by the IMPROPER connection of the connector plug wires to the wiring of your vehicle.It is critical that the connector plugs [on the vehicle and the trailer] are properly connected to the correct wires.The fact that NONE of the lights work when connected to your truck suggests that the defect is related to the GROUND wireas that is the only wire common to all the different light circuits.

How are planes refuelled safely?

mostly by bonding the refueling truck to the aircraft to equalize the static electricity between the refueling truck and the aircraft. there are also different types and grades of aircraft fuel that have very different flash points and auto ignition temperatures. the refueler should also not be wearing clothes that build up a heavy static charge i.e. wool and poly. there are parts of the aircraft that get very hot during flight and on landing, spilling fuel on the brakes of an aircraft that has recently landed is almost a guarantee that it will catch fire. fuelers should also not be wearing anything that can cause sparks i.e. hobnailed soles, exposed steel toed boots, or riveted pants. all refueler trucks should have 2 fire extinguishers on the outside of the truck, and if there is a fuel spill the refueler truck is not to be turned off due to the posibility of a backfire, or started due to the posibility of sparks from the electrical system.
