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. I'm currently updating 2019 posts (Jan 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.

Bit of a mess. If someone else want to jump in before I can post a new "old" aerodrome, please do.

My guess is this won't last long. Not an old one this time around.

Situated between a pretty big river and some wooded hills at right. One long-looking runway (or maybe two parallel ones) with a lot of airfield buildings but no big apron, so I'm thinking military-built. Would that be the old CFB Lahr, or Baden Aeropark or whatever it's called these days?

I think jensdad has it - it looks like Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden Airport, but it was not CFB Lahr, which is further upstream. It was RCAF/CFB Baden–Soellingen.

I just scraped over the line with that one. I really thought that this airfield was the old CFB Lahr. You live and learn!


Was it at one point called 'Baden Aeropark' or something similar? I'm sure one of the refurbished Cold War fields in Germany was called something like that... maybe I dreamt it EDIT: The business enterprise that owns it is called 'Baden Airpark'.


Nothing to hand so OPEN HOUSE.

Are you familiar with the place?

Jenks,

Would that have been the Rawdah Bowl, perhaps? Very challenging in the Skyvan but very impressive!!!

Well now, looks like an A320/319 wing.....small, regional airport type architecture, grey leaden, overcast skies, a bit damp.......some coniferous trees maybe?
Long shot, somewhere in the Northern hemisphere??!!

Those church spires in the background look like they are somewhere in the old Hapsburg empire. Some big mountains there as well that look like they are to the North-ish of the airfield. Kosice?
