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.

Sorry for the delay, chaps. I prepared a reply, clicked Preview but then forgot to click Post!

HH,

They officially drive on the right in this country, but just like Indonesia, you have to be prepared for anything. I saw a video with three lanes of traffic. The two outside ones were going in the same direction and the middle one was going the opposite way!

chevvron,
The displaced threshold is a bit of a mystery. I’ve flown into this airport in an ATR 72 and I don’t remember any significant hill on the approach.

This airport has been closed following the opening of a “jet-sized” airport nearby. The runway is now a rather wide road!

The Mods speak!!

"I was notified last night a new version of the site software is coming soon and it supposedly has two new ways for putting photos in. "

Vietnam or Cambodia
dook,

If I was George Boole, I would say Yes.

However, since I’m not and in the interest of moving things along, it’s Vietnam.

chevvron,
I had a look at the elevations on the approach and there is nothing more than 25’ AAL, so the reason for the displaced threshold is unknown.

If it is Phu Quoc, I did this as a challenge several years ago...

C2j,

Yes, it’s Phu Quoc. Sorry for the duplication. I didn’t see your post when I did a search.

dook’s “Cambodia or Vietnam” was prescient. Phu Quoc is a large island in the Gulf of Thailand, south of the Cambodian coast. Currently Vietnamese, it is claimed by Cambodia. As a consequence, there is a large Vietnamese military presence in the north of the island.

The airport was closed a few years ago and replaced by an International airport, which now flies in 1000s of tourists. Phu Quoc has been transformed from a laid-back tropical island to a destination overrun with new resorts. Raw sewage flowing into the sea has killed a large percentage of the coral reefs, which was one for the reasons for going there!

C2j has control.
