PPRuNe Forums Thread Wiki: Which Aerodrome Mk IV

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 to the notification of their success within 48 hours, an Open house can be declared when there is consensus between multiple other posters which are on line.
  • 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 programmes 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.

Hello Threaders

Short intermezzo,

With the start of Mk IV. I was reminded of the Index Excel sheet nvubu has been managing.
Has anybody email contact with nvubu?
I send him a PM but nvubu has not replied nor been on the thread for a week.
I hope he is well.

Anyway,
I started updating the index and like nvubu has said earlier:
It is quite laborious work.
I have now back tracked 2021 (47 challenges up to 16-05)
and I have done May 2019 (just alone 57 challenges, with as excess 11 May with 5 challenges)

I think indeed the pace is more balanced nowadays.

If any one would like to help:
please start from 1st Jan 2020 and give me a PM.

I'll help out while teusje sleeps - not Tarawa, unless there has been massive reconstruction since i was there on Monday to have my first AZ jab. But It does jolt the memory about somewhere I've been in the past and the roof certainly look like one of the PAIP projects. . .Tuvalu?

The Pacific is right, but not Tarawa or Tuvalu.

Sevilla - famous for oranges (and a bloody great Cathedral)

Bitter sweet? another sort of Orange = Tangerine? Bitter because the Spanish and Moroccans are having another spat over the old Spanish Sahara?

Thus perhaps its Tangiers?

Good to hear from you Asturias. You are on right track - sadly wrong Country.

OK - there appears to be some Japanese graffiti on the concrete block behind the aircraft top left - so maybe Satsuma - but that's in land and there isn't an airfield within many miles. Another classic Japanese orange is the Mandarin produced largely in Wakayama prefecture. Doesn't look like Kobe or Kansai so it might be Tokushima Awaodori?

You can't baffle me with long words but I fear Japan is very distant from our aerodrome - altho' we are for sure in the Northern Hemisphere.....

This is the earliest image (C.1950s) that I can find of this smallish post-war aerodrome - which in good times has a limited number of scheduled services and a Flying School.
