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.

RAF Evanton
Now Technip pipeline welding station.

As ever Bear strolls into his library, flicks the ash off his cigar, settles into his leather chair and glances at the screen - "Evanton, or Novar or Fieldfare. James! A scotch and water please..."

No - Bear got it with Evanton (or Novar or Fieldfare.) which is also N of Inverness

That Technip factory is quite something.

I don’t smoke, don’t have a library and when I call
Mrs Bear, “James” I better make sure I am closer to the door than her.
Sorry to disappoint your perception.
But it is probably not better at my house as it is at yours.
But thanks anyway.
sometimes Wikipedia has its use “Former RAF stations”.

Now this:

looks more like Europe to me.................... but not on a river and a lake = seaside

but close to skiing? = hills or mountains near-by

could be the Balkans, Italy, S France or Scandinavia I guess

On second thoughts the “good” of skiing might be a bit overrated and the “good” of the food a bit underrated.

Looking at the hangars and the width of the paved surfaces I would say it's for flying boats rather than seaplanes ie Sunderlands or similar.
Not Beaumaris or Dumbarton and probably not Castle Archdale; don't think it's Pembroke Dock either..

Not in the UK and no big flying boats.
They did built their own (derative) seaplanes.
