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 1/1/2019

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 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.

Chevron,

Have you read Russell's 'latest lists' thread? He seems to have promised us some new images, and I for one am looking forward to them.

Granite Falls Municipal Airport/Lenzen-Roe Memorial Field, (KGDB),
Granite Falls, Minnesota, USA.

The hangar houses The Fagen Fighters WWII Museum, which serves to showcase some significant U.S. aircraft and ground equipment of WWII.

Thank you. Sorry I was delayed in responding, sad to say I have nothing.

OH




Very happy I was correct, would have been rather embarrassed to get that wrong, as I went there so much.

I believe this is Everett, WA. If correct I, unfortunately, have nothing else to offer.

There is I think a B52 parked at Everett, but I confess I don't recall such a tall control towr.

Blanket Stacker,

Yes, it's Paine Field in Everett, home to the world's biggest building (Boeing's factory) and three great museums.

Russell,

I took the photo yesterday. The VERY tall tower certainly looks very new.

Blanket Stacker has declared Open House.

Re the tower, I think I saw it being built sometime around 2002-2005

For some reason I've been an idiot. Iwas there last month, and took a darn pictur of the tower without realizing it. (FBO were a great asset).



If I may bear with the patience of the audience, can I interject a "what Aeroplane" into the procedings?

Taken at KPAE, Paine Field



This picture looks like a two-seat Harrier, but it is not. (the outer wings come off).It seems to be wrapped in plastic, preserved as per some other airplanes in the Washington area.

I would hazard a guess at a Vought F7U Cutlass.

I think you are right Proggie. Thanks! We may refer back to aerodromes and you have control I think.

My apologies, Blanket Stacker has previously said OH. (my error in thinking that Proggie was last.

Since OH, I offer something else not on Mels list:



(and it surprised me it wasn't.)
