PPRuNe Forums Thread Wiki: Which Aerodrome Mk IV

Please observe the 24-hour rule (see below)
Update of the database up to 31-12-2023 can be found in Post 3731 page 187 06-01-2024
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.

OK… hot in summer, cold in winter. Is that a 60m/200ft runway? North America?

Hmmm. That looks like the business end of a Frontier Convair 580. But why?

What was the relationship to the Jet power 580?
That picture was so clipped that no clues could be seen.

Thanks Asturias, and I recognised BZN having passed through there in winter recently. It was cold and a nice spot. SLB, I guess the Frontier Convair and the Northwest 727 were also snapped there.

Can't access any proper historic photos at the moment so just a 20-year-old easy one from this laptop if that's OK...

well the picture was taken at BZN - and thrnag had already more or less nailed it

People can often get a clue from the type (s) that have operated from there

Yes Thank you, I also searched for locations served by the jet power but it came back with way too much hits to search on that path.
(I overlooked thrnag’s suggestions)

I presume the picture is in a similar part of the world to Bozeman?

But that style of runway markings (anti skid) indicates it's 'slippery' more often than not.
