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.

Which Aerodrome II

no it isn’t The lone star state.
I visited Houston once for the offshore exhibition.
Personally I think one star is about the maximum achievable.
But we are in the USA

SLB, as a former resident of The Lone Star State, I have to say “Them’s fightin’ words!”

So amazing how easy to pull some flak!
Nice videos!
As for the Shackletons: if there is no YouTube video or you donít have the T-shirt, then there is no proof!

Yes we are in Confederate country.

Hen dgraig has the right answer with Spartanburg Memorial.
I posted Spartanburg before with the control tower/tobogan in the playground.

OH is called.

Old Pax it is not difficult there is some guidance in the FAQ part of the website.
It is easiest when you already have the file on your own computer/ telephone.
I always make a screenshot of the picture to be in the correct range of file size and it avoids any file info to be transferred.
(like place and date)

A guess at Down Ampney,

PS - Oldpax

I was also in a Shackleton doing that, and although no T shirt my post flight bollocking was heard by most of the rest of the Squadron

Not Down Ampney either

Dook? He was reduced to the ranks and post zeroed early in November I think and has hardly been seen since. Probably on here under a different name I suspect



here are some of those who served there............
