The Aeroplane Now Leaving Terminal 1..... !

The aeroplane now leaving from terminal one at Clifton Airport Brighouse has an unfamiliar sound about it. Mind you announcing the aeroplane was coming into land possibly at terminal one at Illingworth Airport, Halifax sounds even more unlikely. In the 1930s these were just two of the sites being put forward as potential new aerodromes in the West Riding.
