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 1/5/2019. 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.

I think I would have given up flying long before having that many accidents!

I was sorting my pictures this morning and came across this unlabelled picture, taken from a 172:


We must have had it before, but I cannot name it.

Does that mean you have no clue yourselves?

Then It seems Sycamore has recognized it and could perhaps fill in some blanks?

I have searched al kind of runways 07-25, but nothing matching up to now.

Thanks sycamore. We must have had it before, because that is the only reason it would be in my Quiz folder but unfortunately it was not labeled.

It’s Open House.

No idea but the first picture looks like it is a screen shot from a flight sim and the second would appear to be backwards if the runway numbers are to be believed.

I42 - I can't be certain but the probability is fairly high .



Flaps - yes the second is reversed - quite how I have no idea..................... and no it really look like that tho I think it's an old photo - here's a newer one - it's on an island..............

it's on an island..............
I expect most of the 16,671 named-islands in Indonesia don’t have runways, so that narrows down the search a bit.

East or west of Wallace’s line?

Some folk just can do nothing but complain......................

East of the Wallace line - I've been to his house in Ternate - they've turned it into a small museum

The challenge has a regular air service but not international

OH if correct.

Congratulations - Soroako it is - rather a nice spot apart from the mine which just keeps growing all round it

Open House has been called!
