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.

Not Russia but there is an obvious connection in the photo, taken in early May 2018.

Bingo! Teruel it is. Expected to be yet one more of Spain's "aeromuertos", they seem to be making a success of it as a Mojave-style parking lot. Usually quite dry but at that time this year all of Iberia was lush after weeks of rain.
Dook has the keys.

Hi Dook,

Under the "quick reply" header, click on the Photo icon (just left of the smiley face). The page below should show up, in which case you will simply select "browse your device", select an image from your device (your computer) and then click upload in the top right corner. Voila! (make sure the imge is less than about 800 x 800).

Cheers

North Korea possibly, Burma might be my other option, but likely not enough green vegetation for there.

No time to play, but in leaving do I note the outline of a WW2 three-runway field?

It's not North Korea or Burma and has two runways, both active.

OK - some clues are needed.

The name of this biplane will lead you to something else, which in turn should lead you to the country/area, and this country did have some of these.

Just en passant, the last two respondents served on the first Squadron to operate the type in the Royal Air Force. Not contemporaneous of course.

Then you will have the name of the aeroplane and should now be able to narrow things down.
