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.

Thanks,

I could not find it on Google maps.
Probably old photos can you send a map link?

Now this:
Does it count as an Aerodrome?

That’s an Iskra TS-11 sitting in the weeds. Are we therefore in Poland?

Poland indeed.
Bonus points for the person who can tell why it is in the weeds.

The village leader of the village of Arkadiusz Romaniuk in an interview with Onet journalists explained that the machine was on a private property and was bought several years ago from the airport in Biała Podlaska as a decoration.

Welcome back ASW!
That the correct answer!
You have control.

Asturias gets the bonus points.
On some sites it is suggested that the plane was put there as radar testing target.
But I thought that unlikely as there is space enough on Military ground to do radar testing.

The plane is on a semi buried storage cellar which explains that they plough around it

Kenley, 1978(ish) - if it is, I was probably in one of those tents on the right.

Bravo, sycamore has it Biggin Hill it is. This is a post Air Fair shot taken in 1972 when Sportair flying club were about to depart for the annual trip to the Sportavia Fournier factory in Germany. Aircraft are lined up along the edge of runway 29/11 looking West towards the then still active (OASC) RAF side, not too far from where the below image was taken.

You have the Christmas control.
