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

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 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.

My first obvious thought is: somewhere in Croatia .

Čazma airfield (LDZC), an unassuming little strip located about an hour’s drive east of Zagreb….

Very unassuming indeed, if you look for it in the Giggle Earth.

Looks like a couple of Flamonts 312/315s ?

It would be very plausible for the location…...

Not Cambrai Graeme. This was last year. Organised by a club that has 35 members.

By way of a further clue, here is a view to the site through a window of one of the two Dassault MD 312 Flamants.

No, Brian.

The organising club's name was "Les Ailes Armoricaines"

Given that huge clue presumably it's Guiscriff, Brittany then.

Duckbutt has it!

L’aérodrome Bretagne-Atlantique Guiscriff–Scaer-Gourin, 15 August 2010

Over to you

A bit obscure, admittedly. But I found the story a 35-member club attracting 6,000 spectators, and all the performers contributing, just worth a homage.

Good one Reg, I identified the Texan F-AZRB soon enough but until your clue couldn't find the right airfield.

I've had a good go lately so I'll declare open house.

Looks very green, so Emerald Isle? Donegal?

'866

P.S. OH in the unlikely event of getting it right!
