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.

Never heard of Max Boyce! Just found the extra about Mad Dogs, no I'm afraid.

I believe that Mad Dogs pre-dates the interest of the Master in this spot by several years.

Now bedtime, good night.

Pago Pago (NSTU) in American Samoa. A place where waves sometimes crash over the runway.

Open house.

That's the place. Coward set off by sea to spend time writing there, though I believe that he was distracted during the journey and failed to reach Pago Pago. Boyce, in 1991, while expressing the horror of his nation at defeat by Western Samoa, posited that Wales was lucky that only Western rather than the whole of Samoa was involved. Pago Pago is in the American part of Samoa, formerly ruled by the US Navy, and has only recently taken up rugby.

OH declared.

And even further South perhaps than Pago Pago? I once worked alongside a wing like that, though it was in Liberia many years ago.

It is a C-130 - but if the Dark Continent is Africa you're wrong....

By "dry season" I therefore assume you mean summer.

Since you mention hurricanes it must be northern hemisphere.

Hurricanes or cyclones or typhoons happen world wide in both hemispheres - but not here - which is south of the equator
