Unfortunately not - beaten by 3 minutes. (Haven't we had that one anyway?)

Richard, Yes of course it's Watton ! A lot of local knowledge goes a long way !
Are you going to post something real and obscure ??

As we seem to have two challenges, are we allowed two answers?

I believe that old farts challenge is Ascension.

In order to keep the thread running the floor is declared open.

As a reminder, one pic will be in competition at a time and its poster has control until he declares a winner.

Wick is one of the few places in Scotland that is virtually devoid of hills.

Looks a bit like Altenrhein on the Bodensee in Switzerland.

Thank you for the geography lesson. My memory is not as good as when I flew Viscounts around that part of Scotland, or was it Shackletons........

Krakatoa and S'Land,

Not Scotland or Switzerland.

A clue - it is not heavy rain that causes so many fields to be flooded.

Is there any airfield in SE Asia that you don't know, C2J?

Nha Trang. This airfield used to be the local civil airport, but now all commercial traffic uses the giant airfield at Cam Ranh Bay to the south and Nha Trang is military only these days.

I realized why I had thought we had had this one before - I had uploaded it to photobucket some time ago with a view to posting during "Open House" and I forgot about it!

longer ron, no idea where your post is although with my geological hat on, I would guess that this is chalk country. I hope it was a good thermal.
