Swiss Air Lines' postwar-built DC-3D taxies for departure to Zurich. It has just passed one of Ringway's three 1938 Airfield Floodlights. These cast a strong light over the initial grass airfield from the three clear faces of the six-sided structure. The advent of hard runway lighting made them redundant from 1941.
