Site 23 Beacon Light, Nevada, August 2007.
This old airway beacon, located in Nevada, is a acetylene gas powered beacon from the 1930's, which put out 5000 candlepower.  Research indicates they flashed at 60 times a minute.

REQUEST:  Looking for a maintenance manual on gas powered beacons to post on this site.
