Leeds Bradford Airport

Leeds Bradford Airport is located at Yeadon, West Yorkshire, in the City of Leeds Metropolitan District.[1] It was opened in October 1931 as Yeadon Aerodrome,[2] and is still often referred to as Yeadon Airport by locals. It serves the cities of Leeds and Bradford, as well as the wider Yorkshire region including the cities of York and Wakefield, and the District of Harrogate, and is the largest airport within Yorkshire. The airport was in public ownership until May 2007, when it was sold for £145.5 million to Bridgepoint Capital.[3]

Mystery lightsEdit

The Leeds Bradford Airport is suspect for the mystery lights witnessed at Ilkley Moor, Yorkshire, a moor that has numerous UFO sightings, such as the Philip Spencer encounter.
