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.

Jensdad is on the right lines.

I wouldn't have said it was the middle of nowhere but I was surprised to find out it serves 13 destinations...........

Hmmm... I'm going to go for another French airfield much beloved by the Flybes and Ryanairs of this world. Poitiers?

Is that part of the same clue, or a new airport ?

I suspect that there might be a porcelain factory nearby?

Also crossed!

I recognised the runway but not the buildings.

Not Scotland. JENKINS has it, EDFV Worms. Suffered mild embarrassment there some time in the 80's when I took an Aztec in there. Went past the clubhouse braking heavily only to find another 300 odd metres the other side of the bump.

JENKINS, sorry the red roof tops got me to EDF, thought you had it although the * puzzled me. Open house I think.

Asturias? Flew into that airport (as a passenger, not a pilot!) from the other end. Nice approach over the sea.

Yep, thought it looked familiar with the angle of the coastline to the runway, the drop at the East end of the runway and the woods opposite the terminal. We got a fantastic view of the Picos de Europa mountains on the downwind leg but then didn't see them again for a week as the weather was terrible!


I have nothing sufficiently tricky, so it's Open House!
