Long Description:
Per Wikipedia, a beacon light is defined as;
"An aerodrome beacon or rotating beacon is a beacon installed at an airport or aerodrome to indicate its location to aircraft pilots at night. An aerodrome beacon is mounted on top of a towering structure, often a control tower, above other buildings of the airport. It produces flashes similar to that of a lighthouse." (visit link)

Reading Airport was opened in April 1938 as a civil airport preparing air crews to participate in World War II. Today, the airport is a full service airport operating two charter airlines - Reading Air and Millennium Aviation.

From the AirNav website (visit link) :
"Beacon: white-green (lighted land airport)
