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.
 
Last edit by: nvubu
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.

Well it's clean and tidy and no howling mobs of local help

That may be a British truck in the background so lets try East Anglia?

Not in the UK, but I would have thought that it would be quite possible for a British truck to be present.

Highly unlikely that the truck is Russian as this airfield is west from the UK. There would almost definitely be British trucks close by - if not in this photo.

Not in the Pacific/CBI Theater either (had to look CBI up )

Getting closer, but not on Bermuda.

Here's a couple more images.

West of the UK. A bit warm judging by the sunscreens to shade the ground oppos. Lajes (or Lagens as the Yanks used to call it for some reason)?

Not in the Azores, Bermuda is much closer, although too far north.

Jamaica is the wrong direction, south of Hewannora.

Gulliver II at this aerodrome.


Part of the airfield is currently used for this

Not Grenada - not many more islands left now

It hasn't been an active airfield for a long time - but still recognisable as one.
