It actually continued beyond this point to the Airco factory site on the east side of the Edgware Road (next to the old tram depot).

from Wikipedia: Hendon Aerodrome: In November 1916, the War Office commandeered the flying schools, after which the aerodrome trained 490 pilots. Claude Grahame-White and other members of the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) mounted a night defence of London in 1915, constituting the very first aerial defence of London.

Also I just noticed, if you zoom into the top left corner of the picture, you can make out Inglis Barracks at the top of Bittacy Hill

This is a view looking eastwards from Hendon Aerodrome over Copthall towards Mill Hill East. The lane running across the centre of the picture is Hall Lane, and it turns into Page Street where it enters the trees on the left. Centre top is Sanders Lane, Mill Hill, the light strip running upwards right to left at about 45 degrees. In the haze just to the right of this you can just make out the old Gasometer where Waitrose is today.
