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, haven't flown skydivers there. For Sycamore, too busy in Yorkshire with my external activity to share in the social delights of that spot. Italy, Giro, very wet today, shame. Musing over Roman mythology, and up came this. I fear that lack of copyright, no photos though many memories, and limited equipment restrict me to Google Earth and a touch of obfuscation. This creates comment, I fear, but one more effort -

No, not North America, though I believe that the water feature bottom left is of a type common in USA. I slipped sideways in my musings on Roman Mythology to Siamese motor-racing, inevitable.

I'm confused - Roman Gods and Siamese cars???

Does the large factory top centre have any aviation connection?

That circular bush/ wetlands looks what we in the Netherlands call a “wiel”.
When a levy breaks, the floodstream erodes the land directly behind the breakthrough.
The levy was normally repaired by a new levy around the “wiel”.

But this doesn’t brings us much further.
I haven’t found such AirPort near petrochemical transfer complex in the Netherlands
Northern Europe?
Baltic region?

No aviation in factory. Not Gods, simply mythology, keep looking. As for the landscape, yes, a good assessment, better than mine. I considered an ox bow lake, your impression is better. Not Baltic, but not entirely Northern Euroope. Remember that I am Welsh, and Europe now seems so far away.

But the feature could be an oxbow as well.

That is it. A twin town of Ravenna, the idea from the mythology of Rome's founding. Siamese racer had Romulus and Remus as his two ERA cars long ago, these of course being the twins in Roman mythology. Prince Bira for the younger amongst you! I could have chosen Chichester and thus Goodwood since this also is apparently a twin of Ravenna.

All yours.

As usual the Jenkins crypto mythology was beyond my grabs.

But I gathered the petrochemical location and harbor was too small for a Seaside harbour.
Not completely Northern, started my search from Basel along the Rhein.

Now this:

HALTON (sadly with no 613 GS) and OH.
I've seen that view many times landing Sedberghs and various microlights there.

Only 18 minutes, thought it wouldn't last long.

My son was playing his first adult hockey match (turned 13 last week) on the pitch at RAF Halton, so too good an opportunity to miss. He was awarded man of the match - a really good start to his adult hockey career.

Open House.
