indeed Venice Lido.

a grass strip with beautiful terminal building in Art Deco style.
The photo was a screen schot from a Pilatus P24 promo video.
Promoting the short unpaved landing and take capabilities.

I hope you have something in store for us Descol?

My first though was southern Africa.

Commonwealth yes - SLB how does the exploded image relate ?

For me (being overly generalistic)
men in shorts with white socks up over the calves
is definitely British/former commonwealth.
Could have been a visitor of course.

I think SLBs definition is a good one.

"southern Africa" is not just SA,

Commonwealth with men in with socks is true - not Southern Africa

Pacific Islands?

descol 18th Apr 2021 09:03

Yes SD - Pacific Islands and a commonwealth county - where BrIts / Ozzies and others where white socks over the calves

Does it still look the same or has it been modernised?

descol 18th Apr 2021 09:37

Ast - I took the photo in the mid 80s - have not been there since - I suspect it has changed

Just a guess, GA Terminal, should one exist, at Raratonga. So long since I passed through; I was wearing Desert Boots at the time, otherwise just about as shown. Rugby was the topic of discussion while refueling, being Welsh helps in those parts.

descol 18th Apr 2021 10:34

Whilst I can see why -Jenkins - it's not Raratonga
I still have my desert boots - can't beat them

descol 19th Apr 2021 08:11

perhaps a clue is in order - the airfield played a significant role in the Guadalcanal campaign in WW2

Honiara International Airport (formerly Henderson Field), Solomon Islands?
