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.

Please observe the 24-hour rule (see below) Update of the database up to 13-08-2022 can be found in Post 1372 Page 69 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 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 programms 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.

To give a hint: the construction of this airport was initiated by Nikolai II on the eve of the Great War.

to narrow it down, after 1918 it wasn't in Russia anymore.
And, at the time, it was the biggest reinforced concrete structure of its kind in the world. The domes were only supported by their corners makin it one big open space under the three domes.

Correct! It certainly is Lennusadam, the seaplane harbor of Tallinn.

To open up the clues:
The first picture was clipped so that the seafront is not visible, just to add challenge.
It was recognizable though as the distinctive three domes are there. Actually, if one types "three dome hangar" on the worlds most used search engine, first upcoming picture is the Lennusadam. And if you've ever been there you'll probably recognize it that instant.

Started by russias Nikolai II to modernize the coastal fort it was completed in 1918 in independent Estonia seeing active usage through 20s and 30s, eg Charles Lindbergh landed there once.
Under soviet regime it was neglegted and left to decay. But the imperial russian era built quality outlasted the soviet regime and today it is a very nice maritime museum, the Lennusadam Seaplane Harbor including eg full scale WW2 era submarine, 1920's seaplanes, soviet era patrol boats and much more. If one is ever in Estonia this is one spot I wouldn't miss. I've been there multiple times and even children enjoy themselves there.

Some historical pictures of Lennusadam and what it looks like today (and OH announced)

Nice location!
A lot nicer than the triangular prison in the background.
I was able to upgrade my knowledge a bit about concrete domes.

Now this one:

Those blobs are probably sticked to warn-off birds.
Are they also that much wildlife health aware in North America?

The truck appears to be fourth gen Single Cab Mitsubishi L200 (or Triton if you are from Australia/Japan/Thailand). To what I can get from the interweb, it was not sold in the U.S.

Indeed Andorra/ Le Seu d’Urgell
Not in Andorra itself but at 12 km in Spain.
But I think we will book it in the list as Andorra.
Not much countries or islands with airports left in Europe which have not figured as challenge before.
Then I will look at other continents.

Judging by the crowd of thousands, I’m guessing it might be Hendon.
