Leeds Bradford Airport, aerial view, looking north-west
Undated. Aerial view of Leeds Bradford Airport looking north-west, taken possibly around the 1950s, certainly before the construction of the third runway in 1964 as only two can be seen here. The hangars and other airport buildings are just above the runways in the centre, while above these is the hugh AVRO factory which produced military aircraft during the Second World War. This is now the site of Yeadon Airport Industrial Estate. Victoria Avenue runs diagonally up from centre left, becoming Harrogate Road further along. At the bottom of the picture a golf course surrounds a reservoir, while the edge of a larger reservoir can be seen on the right. Bayton Lane is at the bottom left.
