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.

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.

Have a look at it on Google Earth. Start here:

3131'0.22"S 13837'25.82"E

and progressively zoom out to about 100 km.

Africa perchance ? And is that a jumbo (aeroplane) of some kind, in the distance, crossing the extended centreline of the grass strip, or just a speck on my screen ? LFH

It's not in Africa.

It could well be an aeroplane - the variety of which I couldn't tell you, although enlarging the image, I would have thought it more likely to be another light aircraft taking off rather than a large heavy one.

The circuit has held F1 races
Neither the aerodrome or the race track will be around in 4 years.

Sorry about the delay in replaying.

CGB - thought you had it, but on checking the name and location, not quite. "Clube Esportivo" is correct, but it isn't for ultralights

You are the wrong side of the water.

Correction, I had the name as Clube Esportivo de Vo, (2258'54.77" S 4323'37.87" W) on searching for Ultralights the results are showing across the water here 2258'59.71" S 4322'13.29" W - where there are two more airfields, however, on checking some of the photos from GE, it seems this location is also Clube Esportivo de Ultraleve. Therefore you got it.

Gulfstreamaviator - Rio 2016 is the reason.

Open House has been declared.
