Leeds Bradford Airport, aerial view, looking north-west (Yeadon)
Black & White imageUndated. 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.

Leeds Bradford Airport, aerial view, looking south (Yeadon)
Black & White imageUndated. Aerial view of Leeds Bradford Airport looking south. A runway is seen running up the centre with another leading off to the right. Taken probably in the 1950s, at least before 1964 when the 3rd runway was built. White House Lane runs across from left to right with various airport buildings above it. Nearest the centre are the two large hangars that were used as flight sheds for the AVRO bombers built during the Second World War; the lane leading down from them led to the AVRO factory. Moving right the top one of the next two buildings was the main civilian hangar. In the top half of the photo are 3 reservoirs, from left the Lower, Middle and Upper Reservoirs. The Whetstone Plantation is above these. Bayton Lane is seen running from the centre right towards the top centre.
