Remember in 1987 I think the first B747 to land at Luton - International Caribbean do a sub for Britannia to Faro made a right mess of the sides of the runway - dust, dirt etc. but not any approach lights.
Also in the mid-1970s a Dan-Air B727 took off for Corfu 2 1/2 tons overweight and took out a number of lights on the 08 end. The Captain never flew again for Dan-Air!
Hope I have got the facts right - maybe Vintage ATCO would like to confirm please?
