OK, Austria was the only other air force to operate the Tunnan, so could it be Graz?

Spot on Mel The aerodrome is occasionally called 'The Blue Danube Airport' by tour operators. Well done. You have control.

Speechless Two

It is the UK and no not Halfpenny Green but as you say Bagington (Coventry) Airport. The Kings Cup Air Race was held here but this photograph was of aircraft taking part in the FIFTY YEARS OF FLYING DISPLAY, BAGINTON on the 18th June 1954. The Hurricane was as you say G-AMAU.
You have control.

Good idea, but not Tulsa. The aerodrome is not located in North America.
