THE first photograph has kindly been supplied by Roger Carline, of Ilkley, and shows his father George (Grumps) Carline (pictured left) and Tommy Francis outside Mac's Garage in Ilkley in 1949, when George ran the business with Clarence Booth. Grumps was George's family nickname amongst the children.

Mr Carline said: "I can't remember how long he worked there but I remember him working all hours when Clarry got ill. I used to go a pedal cycle to take him his evening meal."

The second photograph is kindly shared with us by Carlo Harrison from the archives of Aireborough Historical Society and shows is from the 1930s and shows the important role Yeadon Aerodrome - Leeds Bradford Airport as it is now known - has always played in military aircraft.

Even today it is not unusual to see an RAF Tornado doing a touch and go on LBAs runway.
