Ballykelly? But the trains across there were 5ft 3in gauge and the one in the picture is obviously metre gauge!!

descol.

Yes, it has been done before on 13/9/09 post number 1043 submitted by evansb.

It is Bromma Airport Stockholm 1936.

If you look at the Sticky Threads on the Home Page of AH & N, the second one down is a list of Aerodromes and Cockpits that have been submitted. It is kept up to date by Mel and fine work he does too.

Click on Aerodromes and the list will appear.

Cool

Looks like short final for the lagoon at Lord Howe Island, about 400k,s off the E coast of Oz. Ansett ran the last scheduled flying boat service in the world between SYD n LHI
At this stage I do not have the skills to post so Open House.

The white sidewall stripe on the car tyre would indicate USA.

Or Canada. I'm thinking it is a airport somewhere northern areas of North America. It looks familiar, but why it does I've not a clue.

The airfield is privately owned by a minor corporate industrialist. There's an oil terminal not too far away from this location.

I think that might be an alloy wheel rim rather than a white sidewall.

Well it does look like a shingle beach in the foreground, but I for one wouldn't risk ally wheels on that surface.

Flap40 is quite correct. That wasn't too much of a challenge then?

My next clue was about to read... 'Being next to the beach, it did reek of seaweed!' As in "MacGillycuddy's Reeks"...

They were my alloy wheels; just at the end of the tarmac road... no other place to park! But no dammage.
