aerial photograph of Leeds Bradford Airport , EGNM, Yeadon, Leeds Yorkshire England UK. Leeds Bradford Airport was opened in 1931. During the war Avro constructed a shadow factory adjacent the aerodrome with new aircraft able to taxi straight onto the runway for onward departure to operational squadrons. These delivery flights were conducted by the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) , also known as the Ancient and Tattered Airmen as it consisted of pilots not suitable for combat. Today the airport is the largest airport in Yorkshire and Jet2.com is based here.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
