"On the 8th May 1965 the Yeadon Airport terminal building burned to the ground.
As a temporary measure the old BKS hangar was converted into a terminal until the new one was built.
The hangar area was then converted into Air Cargo offices and fondly given the name by airport staff as "Dodge City".
I have fond memories of working in that area when I was with British Airways Cargo in the early 1970s"
