TwoChai. Sorry for the delay. Not as far as the Antipodes, this airfield is in the Northern Hemisphere.

sabredog has it . It is Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, which was as sabredog says Sahar Airport and before that RAF Santa Cruz. The photograph was taken in 1946.
Sorry for the delay in replying. You have control.

Redhill airfield is correct, although I was under the impression that one had to wait for confirmation of the correct answer before declaring "Open House".
