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.

I said it was easy! Lethbridge Alberta, CYQL



Five seconds from ejection to feet on the ground! Very ironic that the PA was broadcasting "Staying alive".

A great quote from the pilot afterwards:
Martin Baker is my new best friend!
The full accident report is here:
Article | Royal Canadian Air Force | Report | CF188738 Hornet - Epilogue - Flight Safety Investigation Report

When I was at Lethbridge in July last year, there was another unusual incident, although not as spectacular. We were surprised to see an Air Canada Airbus on the ramp. Lethbridge is normally Dash 8 country. The Airbus had been on approach to Calgary and had its windshields crazed by hail. It had diverted to Lethbridge for repairs.

One of my favourite spots, especially from the top of the downs.

Don't have anything prepared, so open house.

Fantastic location and we really enjoyed it, despite the weather, and will definitely be going back during the summer for a day of events.
