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.

A Thruxton Jackaroo, a shed, some trees and some 1970s hair.

Canopy doesn't look wide enough for a Jackaroo.

The Oman pics are taken from exactly the same place more or less - and it's amazing how fast it changed!

The first hangar built at Farnborough was the Army Air Corps hangar at Jersey Brow built in the early '60s; prior to that all covered aircraft accomodation including that for airships was called 'Sheds'.
There are only 3 'Sheds' left at Farnborough now; N Shed and D Shed on west 1 Apron and K Shed aka the 'Black Shed' (there were originally 2 but one was demolished) at the eastern end of the airfield.

Well Farnborough it isn't. However I'm sure that if you look carefully at the photograph you will find a few sheds, a hangar or two including those for Pigs Who Fly.

Unfortunately P/O Bacon slept through the raid. She has since informed the C.O. that she is on Maternity Leave.

I didnít realise your airfield was where that happened, Mr Ops, although of course it wasnít relevant to the cause. A sad day but a lot learned from it.

Well done ea200. Felthorpe, Norfolk it is. Also thnarg who resisted the temptation to open the gate. Many thanks to Felthorpe Aero Club/Flying Group from whose site I borrowed the images of The Tiger Moth and the results of the arson attack on the Hangar in 2003 when nine beautiful, cherished aeroplanes were lost, also the thumbnail of the crashed Trident. Until recently and it still may be there, the airfield was home to a splendid, newly built replica Fokker Triplane.



June 3rd 1966 Trident 1c G-ARPY near Felthorpe Airfield. Test Flight, all four crew killed.


ea200 over to you................

You donít have to give away everything but that photo is so pixelated/blurred that I cannot see if it are 2 cows from behind, two horses from the front or 2 elephants with their ears against their head.
Or two road workers in red work clothing.

They are of course none of those. They are actually people in costume and if I didn't know I wouldn't have a clue from behind either. There are other people in shot with more conventional attire.
