Not on the African continent.
Not in Asia.
Not in North America.
Not in Australia.
Not anywhere near Great Britain, Ireland, nor the continent of Europe.

There is only one way, we must resort to the binary divide...

Is the first letter of the aerodrome name in 'A'..'M' or 'N'..'Z'?

I've been away (so to speak) due to lack of timely access to PPRuNe, despite upgrading to ISDN, etc. Going slow, or am I missing something?

Anyway, back to the topic:

May I suggest Malta?

S'land is correct NAS Coco Solo, Canal Zone, Panama. The birthplace of John McCain, the Republican Party nominee for the President of the United States.

You have control.

Thanks Bri. That was an interesting one to try and find.

I could not find this one on the list, so hope that it has not been done before.

Time for a clue or two, methinks.

The photograph was taken in 1925, or thereabouts.
The hangar still exists today.

I think it is Qantas' original hangar at Longreach.

Open house if I am right.

Hmmm, the roof line does not look symetrical which I think the Longreach hangar is. How about the QANTAS hangar at Cloncurry?
