Scott AFB outside of St. Louis, MO.

It looks very familiar.

Thanks brakedwell. By the way, what aeroplane was the photo taken from?

I've tried several times to upload a photo, but it's not playing ball this morning - so open house!

DH it was taken from the RHS of an RAF Britannia as we taxied in.

Don't want to appear greedy so here is a simple one.

You taxied up a hill? (looks like Hewannora in its US Navy days but I bet it's not)

I think the taxi remark was related to BD's previous challenge!

I've no idea where this challenge airfield is, but what an eclectic assortment of hardware in shot.

If I might say so JJ, that is a wonderful photograph of Lajes. Perhaps taken from the 24-hour Officers Club on the top of the hill?

I do believe that is an old Hudson. And perhaps, a Vespa motor scooter?
