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 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.

OUAQUKGF is getting closer.

as for I42 "Let me correct that for you: Quote:… but we're now on theleftside of the Atlantic" I have to point out it depends where you are standing - if you're at Lands End then it's on the right side of the Atlantic and if you're in Port Stanley................ it isn't

Another picture

For the English being known for their correct language,
I think we must agree that the right side of the Atlantic Ocean remains the right side.
The left (west) side is in this challenge probably the correct side.
(same as they consider left hand driving to be correct but then the right hand steering is on the right side)

"A56,it is 5 days since you put the picture up.......!"

true but I've just come off a ban of over a month for answering a correct challenge after 8 hours on Christmas Day - and I thought I understood the rules. The Mods always have the final say.

So you won't get anything out of me until this evening I'm afraid.

Too bad.
As I am back on my favorite foreign project,I am hitting the sack early. So no new challenge from me tonight if I would be correct.
But without a challenge you already have a clue to ponder over!

Sorry folks about the delay

Bear is correct with Recife - it was a major US base from 1941 then a main base for the Brazilian AF - these days it's a big civil airport with occasional military aircraft visiting and a training school for military police, para-militaries etc I think. The military area is bottom left on the latest GE pic

Interesting. It looks like an early Farman biplane, but I haven't been able to identify it. The building looks French to me.

Think it is possibly Roger Sommer,whose son later died in the French G Prix.

The plane is indeed a Sommer but not flown by Roger Sommer.
Not Belgium, nor France.
In the Netherlands we have some hills to match the ones shown hear but albeit at a lower ASL.
So also not the Netherlands.
