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.
 
Last edit by: nvubu
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.

Which Aerodrome II

In my younger days we were taught that "aircraft" referred to anything, aerostat or aerodyne, that moved through the air and aeroplane referred to aerodynes only. As they say these days, the clue is in the name - and "plane" is a term for "wing" as in mainplane, tailplane etc.
Not sure what the US usage implies

Why is Asturias56 now "I'm new here" with zero posts - even though that post must count as one
go to the profile/statistics/find all posts by Asturias56 - and there they are.

I've had that a couple of times when I've been suspended for being a 'naughty boy' with my remarks; just saying and not that I'm implying Asurias has been a naughty boy of course.

MAYDAY RELAY from Asturias56:

“PM from Asturias – his account has been reset to zero posts, his inbox is “full” and can’t be deleted and he is back to one post or so a day (to be verified each time) by the Mods until he gets back to 5 or 10.... no idea why..................”

The soil to the south (in the photo anyway) of the runway looks sandy. To keep things chugging along I'll cast a line at Stralsund?
