Another lucky stab in the dark. I haven't got anything to hand that's sufficiently difficult, so Open House.

The topography definitely has a West Country flavour. The closest I can find is Predannack, but not the same as Jenkins photo.

Greetings to all. I agree about the obfuscation, since even though I must have been the pilot the solution took a long time.

All wrong I fear. The field featured strongly in my life when but a wee bairn.

There's lovely, yes. Maes Awyr Abertawe.

I still have not mastered the system, so apologies for removing the original.

H2 has declared, with an excellent photo, OH.

If you delete the original photo from your PPRuNe album on here the picture disapears from the post

Perhaps a raid on part of the Penemunde complex.

If this site was bombed by the USAAF 8th Air Force, the bomb craters visible on the lower right corner of the photograph are mute testimony to the acclaimed "pickle barrel" accuracy of the Norden Bombsight...otherwise the craters are perhaps the results of RAF night time sorties...
