There is no doubt: Kamloops, BC, Canada (CYKA).

A top spot in Canada for fishing in the spring and fall, golf in the summer, and skiing in the winter. I first flew into Kamloops in May 1971! The tower had only been open for a year or so and was still a temporary cab perched on top of what looked like a high-voltage electricity transmission tower. Where are those old black and white photos? . . .

grizzled is correct. Kamloops, (CYKA), British Columbia, located in south-central B.C., at the confluence of two branches of the Thompson River, and Kamloops Lake. You have control.

Open House

OK . . I realised I shouldn't post a pick right now as I'm currently on the opposite side of the earth from evansb (and the rest of you sods lucky enough to be somewhere in the western portion of North America). Which means -- what with sleep and work -- I won't be ppruning for the next 20 hours or so.
OPEN HOUSE it is!

Thanks PT, I was beginning to wonder if it was too tricky.

It isn't Texas or the USA: pretty much 180 out there. Although there is a hint of it in LAS.

Its not Greenham, it looks more like somewhere in Africa or the Far East. I will take a stab at Colombo

If I knew where it was I would say No, not Novobrisk: tad warmer climes than anywhere in Russia but you are on the right road.......2nd clue.

1st clue was

It isn't Texas or the USA: pretty much 180 out there. Although there is a hint of it in LAS.

DavidsOffice, 10 out of 10, Gold Star, big tick VG. Over to you.

The new Mandalay International which replaced the old airport, formerly used by the RAF many years ago. The civil terminal is on the north western side and the ramp on the south east (foreground) is the military ramp where an occasional MiG would appear.

The terminal can cater for 6 widebodies at a time, but the largest visitor is the ORBIS DC 10.

I don't have a clue where it is (presumably USA) but it's a nice nostalgia picture.

Hmmm...

Northwest Orient DC-3, Convair 240/340 on the wall showing the new equipment that the Municipal Airport might eventually aspire to seeing, sparse vegetation and sparsely inhabited, foothills terrain.

For a real SWAG, how about Boise, Idaho??
