Sorry, not Haren-Evere.

According to a RAAF 75 Sqd. history source, the RAAF operated the Vampire F.B.9s initially from RNAS Hal-Far, Malta, and later moved to Ta'Qali (Takali).
Thanks for the clarification. I assumed (wrongly) that Luqa and Marsaxlokk were the only two RAF units on the island and as the latter was a Marine Craft Unit Luqa was the only viable base as home to the RAAF Vampires.

Which Aerodrome?
More clues: Here is a recent photo taken at the site of the former airfield.

Note for Mel, would you please move this thread 'upstairs' - thanks.

I don't think he meant 'start another challenge' - it sounds like some forum husbandry. Pop you might need to be less cryptic.

My airfield challenge is back in it's box..

I will close this challenge. The mystery aerodrome is Knokke Het-Zoute, Belgium. The aerodrome was popular with sport aviators, and hosted a flying club. It its heyday, charter passenger and freight aircraft operated from the grass airfield. When crossing from England, it was the first Belgian airfield available. Closing in 1960, the airfield boundaries are little changed when looking at Google Earth. Nothing remains of the structures or concrete aprons. It presently borders a Provincial Nature Park, hosting many storks. brakedwell can post a challenge.

Does this perhaps mean that we are about to hit some sort of maximum with 290 plus pages of posts and need to go back and start again at # 1 with a new thread name ?????
