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

Not Australia and certainly not converted to a house - although I did sleep in it for a night.

No - not a hotel, although a small one is proposed nearby.

I see you were not diverted by my initial reference to London. Let me try again: there is a direct land connection to London but although Paris is about the same distance as the crow flies (if there were crows in the vicinity, which there are not) there is no direct land connection.

Not Schermany.

I do not think the Russians have been anywhere near this airfield.

There is a Japanese presence about 4km from the runway but their compound has nothing to do with the airfield.

28km away is a spare deck form the days when the airfield was associated with V Bombers .

I'll be off line for a couple of hours - I do have a day job!

Guessing here, but there is a London on Christmas (Kiritimati) Island, part of Kiribati with which our contributor has a connection. Could it be a new FIS building on Kiritimati?

OH if so.

Chimbu gets to pick from the top shelf. Yes, new tower and RFFS station at Cassidy. The building was handed over last week along with the new terminal. London/Cassidy road is no better and the CCH rooms in much worse condition than Ops Grapple days. Aeon strip is in good condition.

OH declared.

Now, back to the day job here at Bonriki.
