You are correct - mainly Finnish speaking but a large proportion of Swedish speakers...... first time I went to Finland I'd never realised I spoke Swedish - but compared to Finnish..... all signs are in both languages and you can at least make an educated guess at looking at the Swedish....................

But not Oulu.................

The caption says it's Vaasa early 1960s.

...A56,,WAIT..WHY..?how many fingers have you? the game is over after 24 hours....from first post....!

Sorry - I've got enough problems with the mods that I'm super sensitive - I really can't afford another transgression................

Senior Pilot said (What Cockpit post # 1350 07/01/20) "Quite simply, you can post and discuss to your heart's content from the moment a challenge appears, but the declaration of a winner will not occur until 24 hours has elapsed. This applies to all three competition threads: a reference Wiki also covers the airfield thread.I would emphasise that all threads should respect that this is the Aviation History & Nostalgia forum with an expectation of historic images and/or subjects please."

Personally I think it would be best if you could only post once a day - which would allow the inclusivness they want but until then..................

So 24 hours has now passed - it is Vaasa and Dook has the con..................

asw28-866 Iíd say Longreach would fit the bill?


But it does look a fairly recent photo :hmm:

asw28-866 12th Jan 2020 02:17

YLRE Longreach it is, photo recent, however location surely befits 'history-nostalgia'? I'm not old enough to have taken a historic picture! John E. has control.

Well, honoured as I am at my first attempt harrumph, I quietly admit to actually driving plank wing into Longreach. Once.

Here's an historic airport from a different aspect: none of this running up and down runways to get airborne stuff :p

Looks a bit like Lion Rock in the background. Kai Tak? But the perspective seems wrong.

Could be an old Mk1,so you might have needed a bit of runway if it was hot/heavy....!!


(but then,you probably weren`t allowed ashore with 4 x MK 46s)...

Old?!! Iíll have you know they were virtually brand new at the time ;) Mk46s didnít come along for another year or two; I did the jettison trials which is another story in itself :cool:

Somewhere Far East north of Australia?

Yes to both :ok:

dook 13th Jan 2020 11:52

I feel it might therefore be a Royal Australian Navy Sea King but can't find that emblem.

Are we in Indonesia ?

No to Indo, and itís a Sea King HAS1 of the mighty 826 Vertical Pursuit Squadron swanning around on HMS Eagle. Definitely not RAN, I did my time back in the Real Navy about when you were paid by the Light Blue :ok:

dook 13th Jan 2020 19:46

Having found a map of Eagle's last deployment with 826 I think we may be close to Singapore.

Sek Kong, New Territories, Hong Kong?
