Crosland Moor Airfield (ICAO: EGND) is a small privately owned airfield located 1.5 NM (2.8 km; 1.7 mi) south-west of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, in England. The airfield was established by Sir David Brown who owned a local business and flew a de Havilland Dove,[2] registration G-ARDH.[3] It is now run by former professional motorcycle road racer James Whitham.[4]

Technical information

  • Runway 07/25 is 750 m (2,461 ft) long, and is part asphalt, part grass. There is a 2.6% slope down runway 07 from the start of the asphalt.
  • Elevation: 825 ft (251 m)
  • Radio frequency: Huddersfield Radio 128.375 MHz[1]

Incidents

  • 6 December 2008 – Piper Cherokee aborts take-off after failing to reach required airspeed due to the pilot inadvertently leaving the carburettor heat on and overruns the runway. One person suffers minor injuries and the aircraft is significantly damaged.[5][6]
  • 1 September 1996 – WAR Hawker Sea Fury replica crashed 250 m (820 ft) south of the runway 07 threshold shortly after take-off killing the 69-year-old pilot, the only person on board.[7]
  • May 1988 – Microlight crashes after misjudging landing when there was a sudden change of wind direction. It landed in a field near the runway, killing the pilot.
