PPRuNe Forums Thread Wiki: Which Aerodrome Mk III
Please read: This is a community-maintained wiki post containing the most important information from this thread. You may edit the Wiki once you have been a member for 90 days and have made 90 posts.
 
Last edit by: nvubu
Here is a read only link to the Aerodrome Database - WhichAerodrome.xlsx. Up to date as of 1/5/2019. Catching up slowly - up to May 2019 now (Mar 2020).

Here are some "rules" for Which Aerodrome. These are based upon the original suggestions from the very first thread, and have a few additions. Also please be patient as when you are active others may be asleep.
  • A historic picture of an aerodrome will be posted. Newer pictures are allowed but the theme here is to compare/contrast old with new as well as identifying aerodromes which no longer exist.
  • The person who correctly identifies it will be declared the 'winner' by the original poster.
  • That winner shall either post another challenge or declare the floor open. Anyone may then post the next challenge.
  • If the winner of the challenge does not respond to the notification of their success within 48 hours, an Open house can be declared when there is consensus between multiple other posters which are on line.
  • When the poster of a challenge does not respond within 48 hours of a posted answer, this poster can be declared winner if the answer is considered correct in a consensus of multiple other posters.
  • If Open House is declared, regular posters should not jump in immediately, but time should be given for those who are not great at naming the correct location as they may have some good images.
  • There will only be one challenge running at a time.
  • Try to use elderly photos and not Google Earth, Zoom Earth or any other search engine, pics
  • Try to post images that are not already present on internet, as Google Image Search will find them if they are.
  • Personal photos are acceptable as they show the aerodrome as it is now.
  • When confirming the correct location, the location and winner should be stated to negate any deletion of posts.
  • Please don't delete your posts, let everyone see your successes, failures and challenges.
Anyone can edit it so long as they have been here for 90 days with 90 posts. Let's get consensus before changing and not go crazy Thanks to Self Loading Bear for suggesting that we use a wiki. Which Aerodrome I Which Aerodrome II nvubu.

REPOST: Co Ong Airport, Con Son Island

jindabyne,

Watch out - this is going to be really confusing. Here is a repost of my picture to replace the deleted one that came after RegDep's successful post about Port St. John's.




Pop, if you deleted it, I'm not sure why. Photobucket shows it to be 799 x 530.

l'aérodrome de TONG (Tonkin) en 1936.

evansb and sabredog,

I'm fascinated by this 'aérodrome' in my own backyard and would like to track it down.

Do either of you have any more details? Tong/Tonkin/Tonking was the northernmost province in French Indochina which included the Red River delta and present day Hanoi (which used to be called Ton Kin or more correctly Đông Kinh). However, there are no hills anywhere near Hanoi which is on the Red River plain, so this photo must be somewhere else.

Jindabyne,

It does now but it was 1024 x ?.

Russell Gulch

Wouldn't that be good! But no, the size is controlled by 'you.' It would be great in fact. There is a size controller that someone told me about but I didn't get a chance to try it out.

It has always been a problem and you would not believe some of the sizes that are posted. One I recall was TWO pages wide and impossible to see and read without a full scroll right.

Good morning Gentlemen. I am reposting my challenge (and deleted it from previous page) to get it over the picture size discussion.

I42: Sometimes I resize my photo to make it 'legal' size, but forget to rename the file and it ends up posted too big.

"Thanks Flyingwing,

Your next

"

Edit: Clue: There are three aerodromes within 15 kilometers of the challenge air base and another three within 60 kilometers.

I think we must have two challenges, or is that a Tyrolean Airways
De Havilland Canada DHC-7-102 Dash 7 visiting Walvis Bay Airport? If so it is a long way from home.

Damn your eyes Jindabyne, that's Floreni in Romania. How do I know? - I had the same place ready for my next challenge when the opportunity arose! Cunning move to crop out the distinctive tower.

Let's get back to dash7fan's.
