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.

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.

A 'Bernard (bootiful) Maffews' resort perhaps? ie turkey rather than chicken, but then it could be Wing.

Thank you Keith!

That would be the fascinating dome at Langham, recently used for an interesting sound installation by Nick Franglen...

Friends of Langham Dome

Open house if I'm right please!

I do hope that interest in this thread is not waning. Wonder if THIS one will last longer than five minutes!

Sorry, I've no idea. I would say that the general locality is photogenic though.

I was thinking of the Avios advert. Don't know where it is and wont Google as I believe that is not in the spirit of this thread.

I HAVE googled the advert and with the proviso that if I understand it correctly, the filming was done in a different country.

No, Northern Hemisphere.

If I had been here in 1976 or 1998 my knees would have been knocking both figuratively and literally. Probably also between 1915 and 1917 but not for quite the same reasons. Still very uncomfortable though!

Bovec Slovenia it is. Extensive fighting in the area between Italians and Austrian forces in 1915 to 1917, earthquakes in 1976 and 1998.

MReyn has control.

I should like to submit this airport as a challenge.

Airport name and city?

For extra credit, which major TV personality flew out of this airport early in his career?

Very good MReyn.

The airport is now the Congressional Plaza shopping area ... at least the name lives on.

Arthur Godfrey was a longtime radio personality in the Washington, DC, area (starting around 1930).

MReyn has control again.

I try, but I'm very poor at recognizing the fields .. and when I do, someone beats me to it.
