Leeds Bradford Airport
A Brief History
Leeds Bradford International Airport (LBA) was originally Yeadon Aerodrome, which began operating in October 1931 with club flying and training flights being predominant activities. At this time it was on 60 acres of grassland along the Bradford Harrogate Road and flying was mainly in the Cirrus and Gypsy Moth aircraft and later Puss and Leopard Moth for training and charters.
By 1935 the airport had been extended by a further 35 acres and schedule air services commenced to Newcastle and Edinburgh with North Eastern Airways. Services to Blackpool and the Isle of Man also started with West Coast air Services. In 1936 609 Squadron, Royal Auxiliary air Force was formed at the Aerodrome and seasonal holiday services were operated to the Isle of Man and Liverpool by Isle of Man Air Services.
Plans were also announced in this year for a £40,000 terminal building but only one wing was built and then demolished in 1977 to make way for new facilities that form the basis of the present terminal.
All civil flying ceased in 1939 with the outbreak of war. During the war years more than 4,500 aircraft were built at the Avro Factory adjacent to the Airport, including the Anson, Lancaster, York and Lincoln and many of these made their first flights from Yeadon. So that these new aircraft could be test flown, two runways, taxiways and flight test hangars were built on the aerodrome.
