As BAMRA hasn't officially confirmed that it is in fact Orkney, I Googled it to be sure, and can confirm that it's Hatston.

I assume the reference to it being too dry is aimed at my pic and not the Orkneys:}

Turin it is not;)

The Robin inside the hangar and the runway markings have definitely some French touch. Most probalbly Provence or Languedoc (based on the countryside)

Cuers-Pierrefeu, per chance ?

621andy 10th Jan 2008 14:47

Cuers-Pierrefeu- mais non!

621andy 11th Jan 2008 00:22

Sorry, not Greece:)

Is it Limmasol, Cyprus

Ajaccio, Corsica perhaps?


621andy 11th Jan 2008 13:41

Not Limmy, or Ajaccio either...

Small clue, perhaps, Andy?


621andy 12th Jan 2008 02:09

I thought this one would go in minutes!

Someone got very close early on...

Fishtailed 12th Jan 2008 12:05

Somewhere on the Med coast like Frejus.

Lucca airfield?

621andy 12th Jan 2008 14:29

Not Luqa, but Frejus is warmer...

the incivil beast 12th Jan 2008 14:39

Le Luc - Le Cannet ?

621andy 12th Jan 2008 14:42

Here's a pic from the air that I've just found on the net...


621andy 12th Jan 2008 14:45

Not Le Luc.
