A new RUNWAY with strobe lights, found under Lighting / Ceiling Lights, costs 0.
The runway has a total lenght of 360 metres and 10 strobe lights, 5 on each side.
Use the cheat "moveobjects on" and place it just touching the lot where the military transporter is. I've used terrain paint to create the runway part on the lot.
You could also place it on the lot and begin the runway from there. Just place the plane in the middle of it at one end. You need Late Night or a later pack for the runway to show up in your game.
