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.

Here is a read only link to the Aerodrome Database - WhichAerodrome.xlsx. Up to date as of 1/1/2019. I'm currently updating 2019 posts (Jan 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.

I'll take a guess at Lyneham. 216 Sqn were the only RAF operators of the 4 and were based at Lyneham.

216 disbanded on 30 June 1975.

Their aeroplanes were taken to Leconfield from Lyneham.

This might be interesting...…..

looks more colonial to me.
Are those palmtrees in front of the fairly steep cliff in the background?

It's not Canada and SLB has a good point.

However, I don't think they are palm trees but it's possible.

Well, I still think it's a WW2 training field and if it's not Africa I have to guess at Oz. Another wild stab, Benalla?

Hyderabad, Begumpet aerodrome, India. The old terminal building, built in 1937, still stands today. Here is another view of Begumpet Airport:

Good to see you on here evansb! This was a most enjoyable thread back in the days when you (and so many others) would post pix you had taken of aerodromes in passing.

Cheers

This one also looks fairly colonial and is it my imagination or do they drive on the left ?
