I noticed several weeks ago that the Lindbergh beacon at City Hall hadn’t been turned on and I thought maybe I was being premature. But as of last night (Christmas Eve, ahem) the Lindbergh beacon still wasn’t lit. In case you don’t know, the Lindbergh beacon was placed on City Hall to honor a certain aviator who did something rather famous. It was turned off during World War II, during the blackout/dim-out years, and afterward put on display at LAX.
In recent years, it was restored and put back atop City Hall, where it was lit up during the holidays, as shown in this photo from 2006.
This year, no Lindbergh beacon. Does anybody know why?
