PPRuNe Forums Thread Wiki: Which Aerodrome Mk IV

Update of the database up to 14-06-2021 can be found in post 131 page 7

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 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 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 programmes 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.

ex82watcher - Well Done - Tibenham it is. I added a bonus airstrip - nearby Priory Farm (First image) but either will do. Tibenham Airfield home to the gallant, ill-fated USAAF 445th BG and since 1960 The Norfolk Gliding Club.

This Bolkow 207 is based at Tibenham - seen landing at nearby Priory Farm.

Agrarflug seems to operate some Bell 412s with this paint scheme?
But where?

We're not in Greece - it might be Agrarflug but only if they've changed the registration

It's quite a well known spot

Close mountains
Fairly old infrastructure
(probably ex- military?)
An parking? area which looks to be built on a pier/extension?
So sea side?
Looks Southern Europe

“Well known spot”
cryptic like point or peak?
something like Gilbraltar (which it is not)

I think we need more specific clue

Something about the mountains makes me think of the Pyrenees, the Alps or Apennines where they meet the Mediterranean. Couldn't be a naval helicopter base somewhere like La Spezia, could it?

No - you don't see many of the Good and the Great here I'm afraid - and certainly NOT anyone truly rich
