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.

No, not our F27 (which has gone to Ferrymead some time ago).

I'm going to guess Ardmore

a mel is the minimum equipment list. it gives a schedule of what the aircraft can have broken and still be flown.

That would be the view from the sharp (err, rounded) end of ex-Safe Air Argosy ZK-SAE at Renwick, Marlborough, New Zealand.

Most definitely not an F.27....
Yep, twice as loud!

I should be really tough and ask for the name of the airport, Woodbourne, but as it is actually across the road I think no one could argue with Renwick.

Over to you sir!

the airfield was created/upgraded by an ex merchant banker who loved a boags. the airstrip has about 18 inches of compressed limestone as a foundation. methinks it is one of the best gravel strips in australia.

evansb my boy you are correct. you win today's air guitar.

you guys may have realised that the Barwick Airfield sign was a total red herring. when the strip was developed the merchant banker wanted it named after a WW2 aviator, born locally I think. When the council found out what certifying the strip would cost they dropped the idea.
The name remains but is only locally known.

evansb you have the next challenge.
