Thank you for your interest,Spook.
Originally, it was captioned as an Airpark near San Luis Obispo,California. On further investigation to provide clues ,I could not find it under that designation, only the Regional airport. Rather than cause a further delay and possible controversy, I thought the best course of action would be to declare it void and start again. Still reseaching it though!

How about "Silver Springs", but probably not in Nevada or Arizona? Or what do you think sabredog?

sabredog 9th Aug 2011 21:52

Silver Springs is a strong contender,Regdep. But the odd shaped hardstandings/pans/dispersals appear to be missing, but everything else appears to fit.
On that assumption,Regdep. You have control.

RegDep 9th Aug 2011 22:16

Well, it has to be OH. I thought the "hardstandings" in the picture were, in fact, cul-de-sacs of the streets that had been pre-paved before the housing construction starts…..

Thought it more likely to be a heliport...

If its OH then, what about this:
