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 1/5/2019. Catching up slowly - up to May 2019 now (Mar 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.

Appreciate what you are saying www but I'm not being pedantic, the name I have bears no resemblance to any of the names mentioned.

Incidentally it would seem that this particular aircraft was originally registered D-AGES earlier when it was with Lufthansa but later became XT-AGE with Euriasia.


Have to turn in now, no doubt someone will have another name when I return in the morning.

As the challenge seems to be stalled, the name I have on my caption is Kunming. As I said earlier, if this is considered to be incorrect then I apologise.

Presumably a declaration of Open House is now the most appropriate way to go.

Don't know the name but it's about a mile northeast of Newmarket Racecourse. The road is the A11 not Akeman Street.
OH if accepted as an answer.

It certainly is Snailwell, just NE of Newmarket. The line of the old A11 (now renumbered A1304 just here) is the white streak towards the bottom right corner, and the more distinct road that clips the edge of the airfield is the old carriage-drive to Chippenham Hall, which has trees in the park laid out to represent the Battle of La Hogue.

Nothing is visible on the ground now except for a section of peri-track that looks suspiciously wide for a farm track. There's a small amount of flying there still, because Newmarket Model Flying Club have a small field pretty much in the centre of the old airfield.

Probably more than you wanted to know so....

Chevvron declared OH.

Sabredog is correct. Raglan is on the west coast of North Island, west of the city of Hamilton, NZ. You have control.

Open House!! The racetrack at the far end of the long runway gave it away.
