Welcome to the forum.

The main runway lights come on at dusk and go off at dawn. They may come on in poor visibility during daytime.

Have you tried adjusting the time to nighttime?

From the menu: View - Rendering Options

Check the "Atmospheric Light Scattering (ALS)" checkbox for ALS.

Play around with all the settings on the right side of that dialog. Some will affect your framerate, others may not.
