The flares could be ignited separately via a double switch in the cockpit. Instructions issued in 1916 state 'In use, the flare on the opposite side to that on which the pilot usually looks out on landing, should be lighted'. Thus they did offer two attempts at landing at night. Two of the Pups in Pheon's set #32015 are fitted with Holt magnesium flares like this in holders mounted under the wingtips, for night flying operations. These parts could be scratch built or alternatively they could be taken from the Wingnut Wings RE8 and Bristol F2b kits which have night flying aircraft as one of options for each kit.
