PPRuNe Forums Thread Wiki: Which Aerodrome Mk IV
Please read: This is a community-maintained wiki post containing the most important information from this thread. You may edit the Wiki once you have been a member for 90 days and have made 90 posts.

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.

Would that be Black Rock City (88NV)?

I'm not familiar with the place, but just happened to be reading that the Burning Man event is currently on in Nevada.

OH if correct.

Thanks India for the latest weather update.

Chimbu has decided to declare Open House for Black Rock City 88NV.

Black Rock City Airport


Boarding a small airplane at Burning Man’s temporary airport in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada.The Black Rock City Municipal Airport, FAA identifier 88NV, serves both general aviation and charter flights all the way out to the playa. Yes, you can fly to Burning Man, as long as you have a ticket.

Don’t expect cushy service, though. There are no vending machines, ticket counters, wastebaskets, or taxi cabs here. The same principles of Radical Self-reliance, Decommodification, and Leaving No Trace apply here as they do everywhere else in Black Rock City. Never been before? Be sure to peruse the First-Timer’s Guide thoroughly before you land.

Once on the ground, the crusty and professional crew of 88NV will take care of you. The Black Rock City Municipal Airport website will tell you everything you need to know about flying in and out of BRC, sky diving, RC/drone aircraft, and how to get involved.

This should be easy.



No points for identifying the aircraft!

Very pretty but I think you’d need a ferry ticket to drive there, assuming the highways are all open again. How’s the smoke in your part of the world now, Indy?

The smoke comes and goes, depending on the prevailing wind. I live about 20 miles from the Front Ranges of the Rockies. I have probably only seen the mountains for about ten days in the last four months!

At least one ferry ride. The last time I was at this aerodrome, I took the scenic route home, involving three ferries.

Ferry tickets can be bought in advance. Why queue twice…?

I don't think Asturias56 is 'guessing' and I'm sure thnarg knows. I'll name it as Comox Valley.

Well I hadn't had time to look at the airports on Vancouver Island so the actual airfield is news to me - I know I42 goes to and fro to Vancouver quite a bit and so his mention of ferries made that bit easy.

Yes, CFB Comox (CYQQ), known as Comox Valley Airport for civil flights. Recently I flew in there for the first time, a couple of days after a WestJet 737 had an unfortunate encounter with a C-130:





The Snowbirds picture is from this lovely video:


The team migrates there every winter, from their home at CFB Moose Jaw, to escape the rigours of the Prairie winter.

ea200 has the con.
