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.

Pawhuska has rockets and crop sprayers? And a reservation, but too late I see. Spent too long over my skipper.

Dook has it - it is Pawhuska in Osage County Oklahoma - a sleepy spot - most of the time

If she ever tried one, she'd probably put tabasco sauce and chili powder on it and top it with double cream and maybe a bit of mustard.

A very happy New Year to all!!
I'm going to have a characteristically wild stab in the dark... I'm not even sure if it's civil or mil these days, but is it Geilenkirchen?

Sorry - I meant the turn on/offs are almost right angles - I first noticed it at Kursk a few years back where the military silos/hangars have a great hi-speed set of taxiways - but when they reach the runway they have to almost stop and turn 90 degrees to line up.............

It looks like it could be south of Tula/ Ryazan and N of Rostov - but that's a hell of a large bit of countryside - about the size of W Europe

Well bless me old bowl of borscht.

Your old bowl of borscht works well - I must make some.

More usually known as Vinnytsia, but Havryshivka it is.

Over to you.

Interesting place. There used to be a complete mock up of an American township near by that the KGB used to train infiltrators going to USA as "Illegals". But that's another story.



Right, be gentle as I haven't done this before...




Gate guardian for a starter for 10...




And the man it's named after...



Hope it's not too easy/ difficult.
