Jelle on the ball!
Would it have been more difficult if I had posted this one first?

I must say that the NF-5 helped a lot :p The interesting question is: what was the reaction from the cyclist on the left of your first image. It would appear that he/she is past the traffic lights...

Open house by the way, I've got loads of bad shots taken from various aircraft but not a lot that would make an interesting challenge.

Sorry I don't have much of a sense of humour. Can't stand those bratwursts playing around on that 'Gate Guardian' Halifax.

Perhaps this will help?

Berlin Tegel ?

OUAQUKGF Ops 8th Jun 2020 21:59

Well done. Tegel it is. Construction commenced 5th August 1948 - Operations commenced 5th November 1948. I suspect this image is of the formal opening which I believe took place in December 1948 . Concrete was not available so bricks and rubble from the ruins of Berlin was compacted and topped with tarmac for the runway ,taxiways and aprons.

This airport is still operating, but with a different "owner" since the days when this picture was taken .

About a decade later I had a similar view (without the DC6) and saw aircraft takeoff to drop 500lb bombs just behind the hill in the middle distance.

Certainly is Butterworth. circa 1967. The next clue was to be the attached shot of a Lancaster, with a red kangaroo tag.

I spent three years and one hour there 1975-78. The outbound charter (QF 166 -a B707) was delayed six hours and the one hour was critical as it made me eligible for Malaysian tax. .

Officiated at a couple of ejections from RAAF Mirage during my tour, one as tower controller and one as the traffic director using the AR1 feeding to two finals controllers using SLA3/C. Both pilots suffered only minor injuries. The first had been a year ahead of me at school and when I turned around to tell the supervisor about the second I came face to face with the pilots wife who was part of "Ladies night Flying Tour".!


JENKINS 12th Jun 2020 13:15

Thanks. Pan Am R and R flights interesting. I gather that aircraft joining downwind from the range at Butterworth may have caused Air Traffic problems.

Try this: I have very limited facilities, self and machine, but I hope not too easy. My father ended his military career ici many years ago.
