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. I'm currently updating 2019 posts (Jan 2020).

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, Zoom Earth or any other search engine, 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 I Which Aerodrome II nvubu.

Oddly, given it's location, there don't seem to be any international flights scheduled from here

You said it's a bit of a dump.

Did Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid get killed here ?

Dook has the correct country - the Estado Plurinacional de Bolivia - but it's not San Vicente

Yacuiba

Usually Asturias takes at least some photo’s from the Google Earth location photo’s.
The Hercules with the floppy propeller blades is from Yacuiba.

I regret to call OH (if correct)
Busy day again tomorrow

PS,

I first went for an aircraft ID on the quite specific Cessna Caravan/supervan with green top and white belly.
I still cannot find any photo of that one.
Is that from your private collection?

I cannot believe it's Yacuiba.

Nothing matches - runway and markings, ramp, tower, buildings.

But I could not find any match on those in Bolivia.
For the other photos I have a match on Yacuiba.

Let wait and see what Asturias had in mind.

I believe that is not a Caravan, but a Quest Kodiak.

Can I also query the aerial views - also the blue terminal doesn't seem to fit?

The reason I didn't think it was there is that this the GE view of Yakuiba.

I am now somewhat baffled.

Asturias airport picture in 16804 looks a bit like a Flight Simulator picture. The trees at the horizon seem too sharp w.r.t. to the rest of the scene.
