Leeds Bradford Airport, aerial view, looking north
Description:
Undated. Aerial view of Leeds Bradford Airport looking north, showing two runways at right angles to each other. Taken possibly in the 1950s, certainly before 1964 when a third runway was built. Hangars and other airport buildings are seen towards the top while the hugh AVRO factory, which built aircraft during the Second World War, dominates the top centre. Victoria Avenue cuts across the top left. Bayton Lane runs down from centre left to bottom right with Yeadon Moor Road leading off from it just to the left of centre.
