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 1/5/2019. 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.

After over two decades of flying I have no idea who or what Judwin is/was.

Are you referring to the post by sycamore or me ?

Resolution -- Judwin is the home of the former Westland factory in Yeovil. Very good grass field. Sycamore is teasing us, since he knows that I know that he knows it is Seletar. I think that if there is no further, he will be declaring OH, I hope there has been some head -scratching over the topic. Sorry to tantalise, dook, but you were doing very well.

'Raffle' was missed, Singapore of course. The War of Independence was post WW2 against the Dutch in their East India colony. I had a machine needing a 50-hour, arriving from Penang and departing for Bali, following Amy and Jason perhaps.

Bedtime.

I have several lined up but am going to bed shortly and will be unable to monitor until the UK morning.

I'm happy to post if that is accepted.

Many fields were created in the low-lying Foggia area of Italy. The USAAF named theirs individually, but all I can find of this is the name Foggia Main. Recent reading gave me the idea after your note that 'twas not UK.

Thanks, 40 Squadron perhaps. Very busy airspace. Not so busy at this next, though on my sole visit on a murky day there was much craning
to ensure my safe arrival.

Craning wouldn't have been necks methinks.

Unless you were flying a seaplane.

It was my neck in the midst of the big but non-flying cranes.

The shadows certainly indicate it's lowish latitude.

Two Degrees 25 minutes North of my spot in Wessex. Very murky on my one trip.

Wessex in general, a former HMS Flycatcher from a former existence nearby. This, of course,simply in latitude rather than a direct line.
