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.

I was lucky - tried a couple of islands and BINGO!!!

Having just spent a week avoiding posting sheds and trees AND introducing a fruit motif to the thread I think I shall rest on my laurels (sic!) and let someone else have a go...................

Open House

obviously a small spot - the main Norwegian bases are quite big

And so little flat land they've built over the sea/beach - can't imagine it lasting long

Possibly one of the less visited spots like Bear Island or Jan Mayen I guess

North or south of the equator Bear?

No trees or sheds, so what you need are lamp-postsÖ

I am not upset.
Thnarg knows it but does not (yet) wants to reveal, so we continue for the others.

I donít know bananas about fruit clues but I visit a small vineyard on one of the cliffs in the first photo.

Teusje has it with Porto Moniz, Madeira.

I was in doubt which one to post first; the advertisement photo or my own shot from the parking lot on top of the hill. Same parking spot where you have made your photo Asturias!!

Thnarg obviously knew the lampposts are 230V 50Hz.

I'm pretty sure that's Knock? Or Connaught Cardinal Horan Ireland West Airport Knock, whatever it's called this year.
EDIT: If I'm correct, Open House.
