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.

Looks like Van Gogh here has been very busy on that SAS Convair (I think it's a 440) but where are we? Definitely not Arles.

I know that Billund had a viewing area right in front of the terminal where there was just a little fence separating the public from the apron. Them were the days. Is it said airport?

Arles and Norkoping not yet, (thanks for the tip)

As I have still both my ears and do not pursue a painting career I have cleared most of my doodling:

It is indeed Bornholm
Nyrogede Bornholmere are fresh smoked herring.
Hollandse Nieuwe are new Dutch pickled herring.
How smoked or pickled herrings can be new or fresh, I donít know.

Looking forward to your next photo quest

Thanks Bear. Lovely nostalgic Photograph. Many moons ago I once flew in something similar from Copenhagen to Esbjerg. I don't want to hog the Forum and if old Vincent hadn't suddenly left that clue on his easel I would have been none the wiser. Time to give somebody else a chance - so it's Open House and I'll take a back seat for a few weeks......

Assuming north is at the top the trees top right indicate very long shadows for mid morning - even in a northern winter

Are we in Europe?

No, it's a long way from Europe.
Here's the same neighbourhood, several decades earlier.

not much traffic on the big avenue........... no big sports fields & shortage of swimming pools suggests it's not USA - Japan perhaps?

Ah well - there goes the scientific approach

It might be Hamilton Field N of San Francisco but doesn't look quite right.............

good job it was raining this morning - I'd never realised the P-61's operated from so many places in the USA. Bit easier when I figured out it was a P-47 in #173

I think it's Kipapa on Oahu, Hawaii??

Just a stab in the dark, but could it be Cascais, Portugal?
