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.

Not clever enough with my machine, I find. Will try upstairs. Lovely image, I can smell the Avtur.

Still OH, or will you call this one?

How did you save the Gutersloh one into your album ?

I don't think I'll call, even though I have eight ready.

I hadn't, but had intended. I think a session of study upstairs tomorrow will help, after I have done the ironing. Goodnight to all.

FUNAFUTI IT IS

Picture taken last Saturday as the last of the PIF Leaders departed.

Interesting week with a usually very quiet runway in use up to 10 times a day. Hercs landing, then backing up to the apron, engines turning throughout the turnaround and then backing back to the threshold for departure. The apron is within the runway strip so the ATR in shot was an obstruction for both the RAAF VIP jet and a C130 movement just before it, as well as the Air Kiribati Dash 8. Here's another shot of the runway, taken on Friday during lunch at a local restaurant. Conversation was a little difficult with the engine noise throughout the meal.

Credit must go the the RAAF Movements team who managed the non commercial traffic throughout the week.



Open house has been called. .
