I think I've got this. The decaying Convair 440 between the hangars sparked a subliminal clue.

Evora, Portugal?

I'm not sure if this place has been done. What happened to the list? So apologies if this is a repeat.

A suitably poor quality video frame to make it not too easy.

Here's the list I updated as at Jan 2017- it's in Excel on my OneDrive - Link
I was only thinking about this yesterday and that I ought to update it

As to where yours is, they look like Palm Trees, and is that the sea, so somewhere tropical by the seaside?

Not tropical and a long way from the sea!

Oh, it has been done before, but not in the last 10 years! Thanks for the link.

Never mind the aerodrome, thatís a Dragon Rapide if Iím not mistaken.

That should narrow down the location.

Coventry it is; turning base over the Oak pub in Baginton!

And yes, that was one of Mr Collet's Dragon Rapides from better days at EGBE.

The floor passes to Sycamore.

Ah... I thought it might be the new albums wot did it. Very frustrating when others are naming airfields and you can't see them I use OneDrive myself - straight from the phone/scanner, then link to the image.

Maybe that last one was too easy, so something a bit more challenging that hasn't been done before. Excuse me jumping in again, but it is OH.
