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.

Which Aerodrome II

If Magruder means CAC Fishermen’s bend then he probably right.
I found


on
Fishermen’s bend

Lets wait until mgahan wakes up.

If confirmed by mgahan and Magruder would like to post a challenge as a newbie , he might be able to post a photo on a photo server and post de link as text in the post.

I am sue he's correct, but I don't think we'll see mgahan for a while as it's 2305 in Melbourne.

I'll check out.

FISHERMAN'S BEND IT IS

Well done. Magruder. It's now got a bridge approach overhead head so a little difficult to land or take off!

I'm actually up a bit late this weekend day - back at Bonriki.

Bonriki? Been there a while ago - not exactly the center of the Universe......... sunny tho'!

I was lucky - something about the curve of the wingtip just popped Wirraway into the brain.

I have to declare OH - as a newbie all my posts are subject to screening and my inbox is blocked - many thanks to Dook for helping out but until I'm allowed to travel in the same part of the bus as the rest of you I'll just lurk on here....

Good luck

magruder now has ten posts - surely enough to be able to post.

I think I only had seven or eight when I put up my first challenge.

Three runways in a triangular shape suggests RAF, and the fields suggest UK.

Any good ?

Odd layout, possibly due to terrain, but I think I've seen something like it before. Can't remember where though. An Island?
