A WW.II training field to be sure, but not in Africa or Canada.

The art deco terminal building does attest to the aerodrome's civilian origin. The airfield is located north of the equator, but not in Great Britain.

Yes, Mel it is Begumpet Air Force Station, near Hyderabad in Andhra Pradesh, a disputed area between Pakistan and India. The airfield was home to No.1 EFTS until 1945, when it reverted to civilian operations. This alternate view shows the terminal building and the operations buildings, and what may be tents for the enlisted men, (ratings), plus a tennis court for the officers. Credit the previous photo to Wing Commander C.H. Rigby, RAF Ret. You have control.

Found that very picture

Charleston, WV, USA KCRW Yeager Airport, formerly Kanawha. The Capital Airlines plane was a help.

Sorry, but I'm fresh out of pictures. The floor is open to anyone who is ready.

One, I said
