What are those bright yellow strips visible on the 3rd, 4th and 5th photos left of the roundel on the wing tip and under the Vayu text?

Basically all aircraft in formation have their normal lights switched off(tactical reason)and depend on the slime lights for reference to maintain formation at night.
