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.

Close on the aircraft Asters.
Phone call first thing this morning means I'm going to be unable to attend the Thread for today and tomorrow at least.
So will re-post over the weekend.

Does that mean you wish to back to OH ?

Surely we don't want a dead thread for two days at least.

I guess AUx gets control when he says he's back - maybe the next OH after he's back??

Ok - try try again again - not sure we've had a challenge from here recently ...............

If I happen to have a challenge up when Auxtank returns I shall remove it and let him in.

I think that would be the fairest way of playing it.

How interesting.

My answer came from a military site Joint Task Force-Bravo.

Beneath the photograph it says:

[COLOR=left=#333333]A U.S. Navy sailor deployed to the U.S.N.S. Comfort guides in a UH-60 Blackhawk carrying medical equipment and supplies July 21, 2019, Punta Arenas, Costa Rica. Pilots and aircrew assigned to the 1st Battalion, 228th Aviation transported personnel and equipment to allow the U.S. Naval Ship Comfort to provide medical care to Costa Rican citizens and Venezuelan migrants as part of the United States enduring promise of helping its southern neighbors. The Winged Warriors transported more than 470 people and 20 tons of cargo from July 21 - 30. [/COLOR]

Something is clearly incorrect in one of the sites.

I have researched JTF-Bravo helicopters in South America and Soto Cano comes up quite a bit.

So is that it ?
