It reminds me of Karachi but I don't think it is.It seems to have a British India or Middle East look about it.

Would I be getting warm by thinking French Indochina?

Lydda it is Jenkins, now Lod airport. You have it.

Mention in despatches to Max Tow for identifying the Short Scion and airline despite my subtle (?) alterations.

I figured that my location would be a dead give away. Will Rogers World Airport, KOKC. Here is another old picture taken at the same time.



The two hangars in the picture are still there and being used. In fact I was based in both of them at different times.

Both pictures are hanging on a wall in my office. The first picture was damaged by water when a tornado brushed the hangar and removed a section of the roof.

In the front hangar a Jet Commander I was flying actually fell through the hangar floor, well the left main gear did. Fortunately it stopped before the wing or fuselage contacted the floor. It took us a while to get it out of the hole. After that happened the floors in both hangars were replaced.

It is hangar dear boy, not hangar.

A hangar is what you put aircraft in and a hangar is what you put coats on.

Thank you Evan.

At first I though your posted airport was Dade-Collier KTNT, but realized that it is the Space Shuttle Landing Area at Cape Canaveral/Kennedy Space Center, I think.

con-pilot is correct. It is the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, Space Shuttle landing strip. You have control.

Not sure if you can get one of these into Goma, with the lava and all.
Guess its not a good photo, was taken from my islander taxiing past. Lots of goons around so had to be subtle, they from 'da shoot first' area of the world.
Try this, same place.

ps about a dozen of these An-2's in various states lying around

It is a good year or two since I was in Kinshasa but I seem to remember the land being very flat around both airports. It looks like somewhere over in the east, I will have a stab at Bukavu-Kavumu.
