Leeds Bradford Airport, aerial veiw, looking south-east
Description:
Undated. Aerial view of Leeds Bradford Airport looking south-east, possibly taken in the 1950s but at least before 1964 when the third runway was built as only two can be seen here. Yeadon Tarn is on the bottom right, with Victoria Avenue running from left to right above; on the left is the crossroads where Warren House Lane leads down from Victoria Avenue and White House Lane leads up towards the airport complex, the uppermost buildings being the large hangars used as flight sheds for the AVRO factory which built aircraft during World Ward Two. Scotland Lane runs from left to right further up and Cookridge is in the background.
