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.

Well done sycamore. Tuktoyaktuk/James Gruben Airport CYUB. Note that the terminal building is on piles to prevent melting of the permafrost.

Here are some of the clues I had lined up.

A pingo


The DEW line station


The town


Just for fun


sycamore has declared Open House.

Ahhhh,the land of the `Wetwang Triangle`,where studes complained of pink or purple skies,compasses would rotate,roads disappeared,clocks went backwards/forwards,navigation mnemonics and checks were forgotten ,the "Dog was` suspended in flight`....Flight 19 had nothing like the `excuses` they produced on solo navexes..!! especially if one flew a `spotter `sortie and found a `furball ` going on...
Kirkbymoorside....Slingsby ....OH if correct

Interesting field 4nm 350*, had to do a C-310 skills test from there...commited from `brakes off....

Yes Sycamore, and good morning. A delightful, and interesting, reply. I think of the days of Basic Flying low-level sorties, I was always lost and often in that area. Things changed, of course, once I had given more thought to the AA Road Book.

OH

During my QFI tour at Linton, quite a few students had trouble with low level navigation in that area.

Yes, Australia. Sycamore may be more familiar with Kelly.

Not Victoria. I came across it while researching an F4 pilot whose rise to prominence came with a tenuous link to a previous search.
