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.

No - you are too London-centric.................

Never sure if this place is busy or not but it seems to have been there a while

Was someone having a laugh when they chose a field 15 miles from the city centre and named it Nottingham Heliport?

To be fair it's only about 15 minutes out from the centre - and the well heeled all live on that side of town as well

have you seen London Stansted or London Oxford...................... they're well over 50 miles out

IIRC the old Spitting Image TV show had Ryanair advertising "London Mt Pleasant -easier to get to than Stansted, less delays that Heathrow"

Then there was the re-naming of East Midlands to Nottingham East Midlands about 20 years ago.
Caused some confusion with UPS crews looking at Tollerton.
Also, the the nearest city is Derby and it's in Leicestershire.

Not forgetting "London Hurn" just after the WW2. Over 100 miles from London.

Anyone got a picture to post?

Hi Flap. You beat me to it with that one, it was next on my list. However, I will leave it to others to find it.
