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 1/5/2019. Catching up slowly - up to May 2019 now (Mar 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.

Don’t you mean Switzerland ? And, I would guess “lowland Switzerland”.

But the tail markings of the two aircraft in the centre are Switzerland not Denmark as stated above.

I hold my hands up ! I was led astray by the Swiss tails on some of the a/c. Or, are they Swiss ? In any event, I was wrong.

I think they are Swiss - I think it was some sort of fly-in... it's not a busy airport TBH

They could well be Swiss; I’d googled Danish GA tail markings and found some with the Danish white cross on a red background, summed that to the flat environment and shot from the hip! Had no luck whatsoever finding the airfield, though. A few observations:
A) the loooong taxiway perpendicular to the runway.
B) Denmark isn’t particularly noted for dense forest and, if I’m not mistaken, most of the forested land is in the north.

Is it Læsø? If so OH. If not there is a thread from 2010 in Private Flying about Danish airfields.

Laeso it is - a very quiet island between Denmark and Gothenburg. Lieke many of the smaller Danish Islands not much ever happens there but it's part of the charm.......

Well done R2G2 - looks like OH.........
