Mantorp Park or Anderstorp then.

It's not in Scandinavia but it does have an associated motor sports facility.

The plane in the second picture (behind the orange tent) is an ultravia pelican. If this is in Europe, I can make a good guess on the callsign. Doesn't narrow it down much, the plane I have in mind has been everywhere.

Le Luc perhaps?

Is that a T33 Gate Guardian?

Asturias56 13th Mar 2021 15:31

No - it's just something parked up - I don't think this is used by the military very much - its hard to find any history of it at all but I have never seen or heard anyone mention an military connection.

The gate IS interesting as the airport is surrounded by the motor sports facility so day-to-day you have to use a tunnel to access the hangars and the runways............ Of course big kit is brought in across the race track

It looks more like a T-37 to me.

Portugal,or Spain....?

Apologies about the T-37 - I honestly didn't remember it.... but I'm busy tonight and so will stretch the 24 hr rule and award the Palm d'Or to Tuesje with Braga - which really is a nice place

Yawn, another 20 hours to wait for the answer.

Quite so.
In the meantime, having looked at a TWA Lindbergh Line map, I wondered what had become of Winslow Arizona (apart from the Eagles song) featured large on the transcontinental trunk route and just up the road from OP's challenge. Seems it used to be the most important town in N.Arizona & a rail hub until the Route 66 bypass cut it off and now has a population less than 10k. Just like Radiator Springs In "'Cars"....

" I wondered what had become of Winslow Arizona"

pretty quiet place - not very well off - lot of Native Americans. Not much happens - scenery is interesting and they've redone the old classic La Posada Hotel but it's not as threatening a place after dark as Gallup NM

Checklist Charlie got it, Phoenix Sky Habor.
