Baghdad looks slightly closer, albeit nearly equidistant between Tehran and Amman

My immediate thought was Manchester but it's been a while since I was there.

AAO has it. It's Car Nicobar.

Photo was taken sometime in 1956/8. Car Nic was a regular refuelling stop for the Changi-based 'Pigs' (Valettas) and RNZAF Bristol Freighters employed on the regular Changi Negombo (Katunayake, Sri Lanka) run. They routed Changi RAAF Butterworth Car Nicobar Negombo, and later when the crushed coral runway had been constructed at Gan, continued down there as part of the Negombo Gan airbridge, when the frequency was upped to three a week.

I went through Car Nic a few times in 1956 1958, refuelling was done by the locally-based Indian Air Force personnel. There was no terminal as such and on arrival pax disembarked and just hung around the aircraft to stretch their legs whilst it was being refuelled, as in the photo. Once refuelled we were off again ASAP.

Over to you AAO.
