Neither sahib.

Bedtime, my pit awaits.

An association with the Yukon ?

JENKINS 3rd Dec 2018 21:40

Try Canadian exploration, not that far down the coast, and you will find tendrils stretching far out. Now I quit for my scratcher, hope you make some medway.

On a different tack, the nearest town could be in Sussex, this town may not have a former Royal Navy airfield in West Africa, and the nearest capital city may, or of course may not, be in Somerset.

All cryptic, though yesterday I passed the Somerset town and my log hook shows the former Naval airfield.

Agreed............

I've searched every airport in British Columbia to no avail.

Is the exploration anything to do with minerals ?

Leads me to Hastings . but from there :ugh:

JENKINS 4th Dec 2018 12:52

That makes Hastings the nearest town. Try for the capital, though you won't be booted out if unsuccessful.

And back to Canada. The Vancouver expedition spread its exploring a long way, with a ship therein finding and having its name given to this spot. No to minerals, though a current export nearly led to a Court Martial for some of my Squadron chums in the Gulf, 1973. Oops, did I say 'crayfish.'

So, 'up and at em,' getting closer.

dook 4th Dec 2018 13:04

I suggested British Columbia. Am I correct ?

Are the Medway and Vancouver Expedition clues directing us to Chatham?

kenparry 4th Dec 2018 13:40

Chatham Island, Tuuta airport.

Davidsoffice 4th Dec 2018 13:56

Even though I thought it was a Convair in the image, I was fixated on Canada....

JENKINS 4th Dec 2018 14:36

Chatham it is. I had tried to pull away from Canada, 'tendrils,' had aimed for Wellington as well as Hastings, let slip a typo, Medway, and even earlier tried 'pit' since Pitt Island is nearby. I had assumed the aircraft were Chatam 'sahibs' rather than their elderly Convairs. 'Up and at em' is the motto of the HMS Chatham line of frigates.

So, over to Ken Parry.

The idler in the Gulf - my nearest to Khormaksar was about 30 nm SW of Masirah.

This one will, I think, not last very long:

Newcastle - in its Woolsington days?

Good old 'Airliners.net.'

Manchester

kenparry 4th Dec 2018 15:35

dook has it. Dated on airliners.net as 1969, when MAN parking was still self-manoeuvring. In the distance, behind the fin, the Airwork hangars, where in my distant teenage years USAF F-86s and B-26s from Germany were serviced. They were demolished to make way for the second runway.

Many thanks.

That's a very esoteric collection of aeroplanes. The Harvard and the building styles make me think of Australia.
