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.

Slowly !

It seems that there is no evidence of Luftwaffe activity at many Yugoslav airfields.

Was this one used by the Luftwaffe ?

But may have not been German.

Air Force of the Independent State of Croatia (Zrakoplovstvo Nezavisne Države Hrvatske, ZNDH

Nothing coming up though.

Food for thought:
A great deal of misleading information is published about Allied air raids.

The images were taken by B17s of the 15th AAF.

When I search for the name of the airfield, the results always show the modern field not this one.

Also, not Croatia.

It does have an ICAO code. That should narrow it down somewhat.

It isn't in Slovenia.

Reminders:
  • The buildings you can see in the last image are still present.
  • South is approx. at the top of the image.
  • When searching for "town name" and "airport" in GE, the current/modern airport is shown.
  • Even when searching for the full name of the airfield, this current airport is shown
If you zoom out from the modern airport, the one in the image will appear.


ADDED:
My reply crossed with Davidsoffice.
Bingo, Mostar Jasenica it is. Well done, you have control.

So many clues with country and ICAO code, two airfields, geography with rising ground and two rivers.

Open house I'm afraid.
