C2J, you have it.

Did you need the aerial photo?

You have control.

Seacue,

When I saw the first picture I immediately said "Florida", but didn't specifically know where. The aerial made it a "no-brainer" as I flew out of FXE for two years in the late '80's.

I answered on impulse and am not currently prepared to submit a challenge. If anyone has a challenge ready please go ahead and post. If nothing comes up in a few hours I will see if I can post something.

Provisional OPEN HOUSE ??

Whilst C2j is looking at his options, may I offer you good people this view to consider ?

I'm afraid that the airfield is not historical, but the town that it serves is. A nation was born here in 1889.

Another view. (I'm sure that it won't last long once our friends from the antipodes awake in the morning).

Re 5283; Attlebridge is surely in Suffolk not Norfolk!

Capot

Sir Henry Parkes is correct but I'm afraid that the location, although in the correct country, is not.

Tenterfield is correct.

On 24th october 1889, Sir Henry Parkes broke his train journey at Tenterfield and delivered the speech which led to the formation of the Federation of Australia.

The airfiield as well as being used by a crop duster, is kept operational to facilitate Air Ambulance flights.

You have control Capot.

Dave

PS.....thanks Reddo
