                            HOW TO USE AGNIS STAND GUIDENCE
                            Just left red light visible - Too far to left
                            Just right red light visible - Too far to right
                            Both red lights visible/flickering. Green and orange bars visible= dead centre
                            AS the aircraft gets closer to stop point the size of the orange/green bars reduces and the red bar becomes visible.
                            When the green/orange bars disappear, means STOP
