mel 33-11

Hello all

On mel 33-11 there is a big difference between single lens wingtips and double lens wingtips, on the single lens wingtips the red nav light can be inoperative for only 3 days (cat B item) while on the double lens wingtip the red nav light can be inoperative for 10 days (cat C item)

For the green nav light there is no difference...

Anyone know why this is?

Thanks in advance.
