Thanks Jarvis
I am sure this next one will cause no problems, this airfield played a part in the UK's Aviation Heritage.

Now you refer to it as being in UK then you mention 'country', the singular of.
UK is 3 and a bit countries, might one presume that 'country' refers to England?

Your deduction was correct. It was a photograph of Brough.
You have control.

Hi, my first message so please don`t shoot me!

The airport at #209 is the Vienna International Airport in the early sixties. Linz Airport was not yet ready for the Saab Jets at this time.

If you check Post #216 I suggested that the airport shown at Post # 209 was Linz-Hörsching which was a Civil/Military airfield which had existed since 1939. It is agreed that Linz (Blue Danube air haven) was not opened until 1955 however officially, it existed since 1939 at the location of Hörsching.

Perhaps the picture is of Nice - Cote d'Azure.

I go away for four days and the thread nearly dies. Shame!

FL575. Not only could it be Kai Tak! It was Kai Tak in the early 1960s.
