No. A careful look at the architecture may assist in determining the locale.

Aveiro Aerodrome

Established in 1917 as a French Hydroplane Base with Portuguese support the Military facility of São Jacinto, Portugal. Judging from GiggleEarth, most of the buildings are still there. 40° 39' 30" N 08° 44' 00 W

RegDep is correct. San Jacinto, Portugal it is! Yes, several structures still stand. Well done. Your turn.

No idea where it is, but I don't like the look of that crosswind!

They themselves described it: "Although, again this year, we had the Weather Gods not necessarily sympathetic, at least it was mostly dry."

950 aircraft movements, nevertheless, they say. But I don't know if the A380 fly-by counts in or not…..

I can see three (ex) runways there. Not a clue where it is though.

Gentleman,
Not wishing to inadvertently stall this thread,and as it now transpires that there is some doubt over the exact name/location of the Airpark, I shall withdraw this challenge and declare;
"Open House".
With apologies.
