Wapiti/Afghanistan?

ea200 28th Nov 2018 17:16

Somewhere on the Sub-Continent I suppose. Wapitis were in what is now Pakistan I think, but it's not Risalpur. Is the river the Indus?

JENKINS 28th Nov 2018 17:22

Pure luck by starting off in the right place, oil and gas helped. Kamloops BC?

Well spotted Jenks.

New balls please.

Thanks. Judwin's best gave the 'elk' clue and so Canada, with the tank complex sending me after oil and gas therein, really lucky.

So this one, a single visit, just like Judwin. Machine was here for routine servicing.

Wheressa pic....?

JENKINS 28th Nov 2018 19:17

Oops, bit high on round-out? Sorry.

dook 28th Nov 2018 19:33

Looks like a fairly big airfield and I can't see any passenger-handling buildings so I imagine maintenance only.

Australia ?

JENKINS 28th Nov 2018 19:43

General Aviation, Training, Maintenance, and so on. A War of Independence in its past. My own visit allowed me a easy afternoon before my continued odyssey the next day. Hotac in nearby city, bit of a raffle as to which I chose, bit better than the night before.

dook 28th Nov 2018 19:49

That makes me think of the USA.

JENKINS 28th Nov 2018 19:59

A little known War, not American. One clue missed, but keep lookng. Amy and Jason visited, Kate and Val came later.

dook 28th Nov 2018 20:17

Turkey or possibly Mexico.

dook 28th Nov 2018 20:22

Hang on - I'm thinking aircraft and I've already asked about Australia.

JENKINS 28th Nov 2018 20:33

Yes to aircraft-thinking, bit far out on locations even if in-between two.

Amy Johnson flying in 'Jason'

dook 28th Nov 2018 20:39

That's why I suggested Australia.

The other two are WW2 Japanese aircraft.

dook 28th Nov 2018 20:47

Amy had several refuelling stops in Indonesia.

Another couple of Judwin`s finest operated here,until one retired gracefully......! and I got a weeks OO...amongst other things....

JENKINS 28th Nov 2018 20:49

Pretty good, little bit of refinement and you will be there. There are others of this parish who should be more familiar.

JENKINS 28th Nov 2018 20:51

Have just seen the Sycamore response, so come on old bean, tell us and I can go to bed. Be quick, because dook is closing in.
