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 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.

As you can see, I am guessing. One more go, & then I will let someone else have a chance - Porto Santo ?

Unless you have some info - such as checking Google Earth, or other pics of the airport you suggest its far better to keep asking questions than running down a long list of airports

eg

is it n or south of Lisbon International

Fair enough - that’s why I stopped at my third guess. I was so elated to have got the country correct, that I could hardly stop guessing at all !

Sorry, I was distracted by the birthday of Goldie locks of the Bear family.

I realize my photo did not have much info to go by. Portugal indeed and the right airport has been guessed in the mean time.

Until the 24 hours have passed,

All might be revealed by this photo.

The rule is 24 hours from the original post, not from the correct answer being given.
Dixi.

Dixi is correct in the 24 hour rule.
I thought I had staged the challenge yesterday evening but that was indeed around noon.

Despite the gunfire approach of kcockayne it is Chevvron who takes it home with Lisbon.

A dreadful experience to spent 4 hours in the ULC Terminal 2. If you have to do a transfer in Lisbon then stay in Terminal 1!

OK, that teaches me to “never assume”. Somewhat relieved, actually, as I don’t have anything at hand. Bring it on, chevvron.

Are these chaps waiting for the air display to start ? I think not. I fear this field had a very brief life which started in 1944 - I can find no images of it from those days.

Brief life starting in 1944 showing a 'blister'.
I would say it's an ALG; Headcorn?

No I don't think it is. Apparently a Stinson Reliant was based there and could also be seen at Northolt quite regularly.........


Not, I hasten to add, the aircraft in question.
