EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a unique moment in the history of Teesside Airport, England. Taken on the 23rd of May, 1983, it showcases a group of nesting starlings that have caused an unexpected delay in the replacement of a towering 60-foot apron floodlight. In their wisdom, airport authorities decided to halt any work on improving the lighting infrastructure until these fledglings had safely flown from their nests. This thoughtful act demonstrates both respect for nature and a commitment to preserving wildlife habitats even within bustling aviation hubs. The image itself depicts more than just avian inhabitants; it also offers glimpses into the vibrant atmosphere of air travel during the 1980s. A Boeing 727 aircraft belonging to Dan Air can be seen parked nearby, symbolizing an era when this British airline was at its peak. Transport enthusiasts will appreciate this snapshot as it encapsulates not only a specific time but also an entire industry's evolution. The United Kingdom's aviation sector underwent significant changes throughout the late twentieth century, making this photograph all the more valuable as a historical artifact. Memory Lane Prints' dedication to preserving such moments is evident in their selection of this remarkable image. While commercial use may not be mentioned here, one cannot help but imagine how many stories lie behind each person who walked beneath that delayed floodlight or boarded that waiting plane.
