Help with airfield indentification please

Hey folk,
I'm trying to track down the airfield in this picture, it was during its construction. Any help would be appreciated.

Will do thanks.



Edit

Can admin move this to the AH&N forum so I don't create multiple posts on the same topic? Cheers

Do you have the original photo? - If so is there anything marked on the reverse?

Don't thinks, I orientated GE to roughly the same as the old photo and it has a different configuration.
