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.

Aviate - Errrr - yes please - Are you able to be a little more precise - It fooled me for a while and I had do some serious looking that I would not wish to give away too easily. LFH

PS anyone want to say how many aircraft involved in the picture ? As opposed to the number shown in the formal public title.

LFH,

I think aviate1138 has been drinking too much Moselle.

Never mind the number of aircraft. What's the swept-wing job on the grass?

at a guess - MiG-15 ? Korean war trophy or 'come-over' perhaps ? The photos dated about 1955.

That's what I thought to start with AV8 - To be fair - you're probably close enough for Govt work but there are two Triers - twelve miles apart - this one and the other one Can you identify the correct one ?


16 aircraft + photo aircraft
Well done - plus the ? MiG

You got it AV8 - Well done - you have control.

WWI, WWII and then ALG Y-57 etc Down-town Trier.

Now an industrial estate - you can just make out the old runway along Hanns-Martin Schleyer Str.







GE ref for old Trier AB Lat & Long 49.72304,6.60126

Thanks LFH it has to be OPEN HOUSE.

BTW I notice the French Air Force were also based at Trier and I wonder if the swept wing fighter on the ground may be French?

Yes, it certainly does look like an early Dassault Mystere, much more probable than a Mig 15...

I wouldn't argue with that, much more logical. Got NK on the mind. Thank-you both.

Open House ? - try this - LFH

Open House if correct.

Sorry chaps - out to lunch.

Dallas Love Field it is - 13R over Bachmann Lake

Nvubu had it for precision but said OH.

LM pointed us to the ball park - so I say -

Lightning Mate has control.

No need for a question mark there, it is Love Field, as I've seen that view thousands of times.
