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.
 
Last edit by: Self loading bear
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.

Been on the road for the last 48 hours.

No one has asked any questions or tried to cut down the area Bear - they could have asked if it was in the Confederacy for example or when the extension work was done.

Sifty is getting pretty close

it's NOT in NH by the way - but a lot closer than Iowa

Neither the town nor the airfield is named after a European Capital - I can't find out who the town is named after but the airfield has the same name as a scientist

It snows a lot in winter

Thanks Asturias,
1 runway direction says more than 100 pine trees.

And can you tell me if they are on track to finish that runway extension by the end of this month?

"1 runway direction says more than 100 pine trees." - which is why I don't post them straight away!

​​​​​​As to the extension opening - the rain (which has been going on for days) may affect the opening at month end - but I believe the float plane fly-in down at the lake is still on for Thursday!!

Since you've clearly got it so please formally name it as a reward for all those C 172's

It is indeed Caen-Carpiquet.
The hangars on the south side now host the D-Day wings museum.
That museum was a bit disappointing to me but interesting for my daughter (16 yr)
The military part on the south is now repurposed for various civilian businesses and renamed
quartier Koenig after the French Marshal.
Best feature in this quartier is Restaurant Nonno.
Which is housed in the building with the American wings.



to JMMorric:
Welcome to the thread. We normally wait with posting new challenges until Open House (OH) is declared by the previous winner or if you have solved the previous challenge yourselves as first one and you have been declared winner by the previous poster.
I believe OAUQUKGF has solved your challenge and then I propose that Siftydog takes the lead.

I’d better hand over to OAUQUKGF as I’ve nothing handy to post just now. That charcuterie and cheese platter is the most exciting thing I’ve seen today btw!

That is what we in Dutch call a Worst-Kaas scenario.
