Sheremetyevo

Sorry Speedpig, not Moscow-Sheremetyevo.

Those look like SAAB Tunnans to me - Stockholm?

Saab Dastard, right on the jets, but it is not Stockholm.

Saab Dastard 22nd Jul 2007 17:57

OK, Austria was the only other air force to operate the Tunnan, so could it be Graz?

evansb 22nd Jul 2007 18:35

SD, it is in Austria, but not Graz.

Linz-Hörsching which was a the joint civil and military airport in the 1950s

Spot on Mel:ok: The aerodrome is occasionally called 'The Blue Danube Airport' by tour operators. Well done.:D You have control.

Speechless Two
 
It is the UK and no not Halfpenny Green but as you say Bagington (Coventry) Airport:ok::D. The Kings Cup Air Race was held here but this photograph was of aircraft taking part in the FIFTY YEARS OF FLYING DISPLAY, BAGINTON on the 18th June 1954. The Hurricane was as you say G-AMAU.
You have control.

I hope it won't last 24 hours.
Could that be a clue?

Tulsa?

evansb 23rd Jul 2007 22:15

Good idea, but not Tulsa. The aerodrome is not located in North America.

Tiger_mate 23rd Jul 2007 22:55

Is it a seaplane base, or an 'aerodrome'?
