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 (Open House). Anyone may then post the next challenge.
  • If the winner of the challenge does not respond within 48 hours, to the notification of their success, an Open house can be declared when there is consensus between multiple other posters which are on-line.
  • (if you in know in advance that you will not be able to follow up with an own challenge you can post your answer with "(Open House when proven correct)"
  • 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 to be 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 too much Google Earth,Zoom Earth or any other online map pics.
  • Try to post images that are not already present on internet, as Google Image Search will find them if they are. Searching by using Google Image Search, or programs a-like, is ought not to be done.
  • 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.
  • Due to obsessive posters in the past, the web moderators have enforced the 24-hour rule:
Each challenge shall run at least 24-hours before a winner is declared by the original poster. This is to enable all Ppruners to search for the challenge and to contribute. This is not a competition, no points are assigned to the winner. Please be careful when posting your answer early, especially when you intend to declare Open House. Much other Ppruners are put-off if the answer is already given and you still have to wait till the initial 24-hours are over anyway. Anyone can edit this Wiki post provided they have been member of Pprune for 90 days and have minimum 90 posts. But please let's get consensus before changing and not go crazy.

No "double-yellow lines" at Kissimmee according to GE.

I would suggest that some research along the lines of 'P51 world records' would narrow things down a bit. This airfield does get a mention.

For world records in the confederacy and flat countryside like Florida I would suggest New Smyrna Beach; it has 'T' style parking rather than parking in rows.

Afraid you have gone in the wrong direction.

Could be Titusville - valiant Air Command's base - but I don't remember the yellow marking when I was there in 2018

Is the airport still in use - several in C Florida have been "re-purposed"?

You are heading in the right direction. Airport is about 30 years old and is certainly still in use. Couple of 172s active at the moment but it is still early there. You need a more wordy answer.

Would the words resemble 'Riddle' and 'Embrey'?

I think the building has a specific signature, but the airport could generally be in each county.

I can see no connection with Embry-Riddle but they might use it.
Bear clearly knows where it is but I can't declare it if nobody actually names it with its' 5 word name. I would accept the first 4 which is common usage.

Care to sort it out between you?

Signature Flight Support is the owner of the building and County is part of the name.

P51 record was by that prolific record setter Doug Mathews. On his altitude record his chase plane launched out of this airfield.

That mouthful of a name is correct. Bear has control.
