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.

It looks like only a better class of pilot is allowed there.
All the tyre marks are in the touchdown area and right on centerline.
Probably like the one-way strips in New Guinea - Darwinian selection of the survivors.

Mae Hong Son has my vote as well, from studying Google Earth. Terry Dactil, had the same thought, sphincter tightening precision. Traffic appears to be mostly twin turboprops a la ATR.

If one looks at Google Earth it doesn't take a modicum of Rocket Science to confirm that the image posted by Jay Sata isn't anything other than Mae Hong Son.


Can anyone else please concur and therefore reach the right conclusion? we could otherwise be waiting for weeks on end whilst we wait for the OP to reply.

Chitts and Heathrow Harry, we went through periods like this on WOE ages ago and I think we reached a more-or-less consensus that, in the event of the challenger not confirming what appeared to be a correct answer, things would move on with Open House being declared. Even if there was some doubt, the lack of response from a challenger shouldn't be grounds for holding up the fun.

Wrt Mae Hong Son, SMOKEON nailed it within 23 minutes and we're now three days on....

Jay Sata - The person who correctly names the aerodrome gets to be in control of the thread and has the option of posting their own image or passing control with an Open House. But that person can't post until acknowledged by the challenger - as broadreach says.

In this case you need to cede control to SMOKEON and wait until you correctly name a challenge or there is an open house declared.

Thank you, Jay Sata.
Not wishing to muddy the waters further, but JRFD answered challenge #7691 Wrexham
correctly, but was not given the opportunity to offer a new challenge.
I feel JRFD should take the helm, failing that, it's Open House.

As there has not been a response from JRFD, I believe it is now " Open House".

This is a two-parter. The dirt strip is roughly east/west and was used predominately by the UN over the past two decades. The tarmac is quite new and about 20nm north. Both airfields share the same name.
