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.

Sorry for the delay - we're just groaning of bed here in Western Europe. I'll have a scratch around for some old slides, meantime it's OH.

I'm guessing that was an Air Raro bandit in the cockpit photo? The runway certainly looks like an upgrade on 20years ago. If my memory serves me the RNZAF flew a B727 in some moons back, it was big news.

Incidentally, how far from the epicentre was that quake felt in NZ this evening?

I dont know what aircraft that picture was taken from. The runway is quite an upgrade from my time there too, 40 years ago.

The shakes were (are) felt from Auckland to Dunedin although we didnt feel anything here in Ashburton. They are still going on.

Amberley Qld?

no If I had a better guess I'd say it looked like Bandianna but it appears too flat for that.

Not Amberley.

I suspect that the runways at Amberley were built simultaneously with the rest of the base.
