Aerial view of Yeadon Airport (Yeadon) (5 comments)
Black & White image1955 Aerial view of Yeadon Airport taken in 1955, when it was run by Yeadon Aviation Ltd. After the war scheduled civil flights began and by 1955 there were scheduled services to Belfast, Jersey, Ostend, Southend, the Isle of Wight and Dusseldorf. During the war Avro Lancaster parts were made at a nearby factory in Victoria Avenue, now Yeadon Airport Industrial Estate. The two large adjacent buildings at the top are test/flight hangars. Aircraft would be brought here, via the road leading in from the left edge, from the Avro factory to be part-assembled and tested. The road cutting diagonally across the top left hand corner is White House Lane.
