Based on the theory of linear systems for solving the problem of image transfer through the scattering media, we present the results of calculations of the brightness of the image of an airdrome runway observed by a pilot when he lands his aircraft in fog. The results show that the visibility range of the airdrome runway in fog is more than twice as large as that predicted on the basis of the vision theory which ignores the additional contribution of light scattered by the observed object to the brightness of its image.
