Nope.
I'll even give you more: We're not in the Middle East

India Four Two 4th Dec 2018 21:07

Afghanistan?

dook 4th Dec 2018 21:09

Australia ?....

Sam Asama 4th Dec 2018 21:14

India For Two is on target...

dook 4th Dec 2018 21:28

Shindand ?......

Sam Asama 4th Dec 2018 21:32

I have to go offline soon so I'll try to hasten this: A Canadian would feel right at home whilst enjoying the boardwalk...

Sorry dook I missed your last post, Nope, not Herat.

dook 4th Dec 2018 21:39

When did I suggest Herat ?

Might I try Khost.

Sam Asama 4th Dec 2018 21:47

Was trying to help by saying it's not anywhere in Herat Province...

Sam Asama 4th Dec 2018 21:49

You'll kick yourself...

Sorry, Not Khost

Sam Asama 4th Dec 2018 21:59

When I was first there the "Commander" of the airfield was a former Commandant of RAF College Cranwell...

As John Denver wrote, "I'm leaving on a jet plane" soon, so one more clue then I suppose I'll have to give it up -- or you have to wait a day or so...

In 2009 it became the world's busiest single runway airport...

Kandahar?

Sam Asama 4th Dec 2018 22:41

Yes Indeed!
That location of Tim Horton's holds the record for the most "IceCapps" sold in a day (great trivia question if you want to stump a Canadian...).
And if you don't know what a Tim's IceCapp is, you must go to Canada and find out -- rather than the boardwalk at Kandahar...

Take it away, India!

Terima kasih Sam,

Like all good Canadians, it’s important to know where your nearest Timmy’s is. There is an app for that, called appropriately enough, Timmy Me.

When I lived in Vietnam, I tried it out, expecting to see Kandahar, but that was not included in the database, presumably since I wouldn’t be able to walk in there. It turned out that my nearest “double-double” was 5600 nm away in Whitehorse, YT!

Standby until I get home and access my laptop.

No Tim Hortons here and no conflict, as far as I know:

Gents:

At the risk of totally disrupting the sequence, may I return to Dook's posting (#10287) of Gould?

While there were several wartime constructions in Australia where widely separated runways were joined by taxiway, Gould is unique in that it was joined by taxiway to another airfield (Batchelor). Note Gould appearing at the bottom of the diagram of Batchelor

India Four Two`s airfield could be Saba.

India Four Two 5th Dec 2018 07:09

Not Montserrat. Similarities to Saba, but not there.

Unusual maybe but not unique; in Wales, St Athan was joined to Llandow by a taxiway and on Malta, Luqa, Safi and Hal Far had a taxiway connecting all three.
