Comment Crowds of people on Cemetery Road waiting for the arrival of Concorde at Leeds Bradford Airport. The first flight in was made by Air France to/from Charles De Gaulle Airport, Paris, all other flights were made by British Airways operating to/from London Heathrow with some local short pleasure trips flying super-sonic over the North Sea.

The magnificent sight of Concorde taking off over the heads of plane spotters watching from the view point on Cemetery Road.

It was the first time Concorde had visited LBA.

Leeds & Bradford Airport – 2021

Thought this aerial photo of LBA during lockdown could be added AHS records. Fifteen planes parked up and car parks empty, not like the airport carpark on Warren House Lane which was near full when I passed yesterday. The photo is a screen grab from Bing Maps so not my picture.
