Here is a clue: The aerodrome is still operational, but the military has moved out.

To get the thread going:

It looks like Germany and if so the helicopters would be German Army Choctaw.

The vinyards? suggest the Mosel valley of SW Germany.

Anywhere close?

Heildleberg? He says without checking first.

With the clue that it might be in the Mosel Valley I suggest:

Flugplatz Mont Royal near Traben Trarbach

I think those are orchards rather than vineyards, and specifically olive trees or possibly citrus. So are we in Iberia or Italy?

Curses (or perhaps I should say soddit)! Wrong river. I was up the Po without a paddle! Do you know how long the Po is and how many meanders there are?

Indeed I do, India four two. And the Tiber is not without.Hopefully this one will not be overtaxing. It is east of Suez.

Ah, Jenkins...so prosaic. Sadly it, is not, I much regret to have to tell you, VYMD. A trifle too far, I think, in the direction of India Four Two.
