This should be an easy one for some.

The only airfield I know with a water tower bang on the extended centreline is Guernsey :)

Flap40 29th Jul 2020 18:46

I said it would be easy!

I'm amazed it took so long, with some esteemed contributors from the Channel Islands who lurk around these pages...

Here's another airfield of these islands that might not last long. Some of it might even have gone already, I'm not sure...

That's only a few miles from where i'm currently sitting.

I'll leave it for someone else.

Very gracious of you, flap!

jensdad 2nd Aug 2020 18:20

Is anyone out there?
To sum up previous clues: it's in the same group of islands that I live in, and flap lives near there.

And it's featured here before...

Edinburgh Turnhouse

Absolutely correct, SLB. I think my last challenge on here was from the same airfield. I need to get out more :)
You have control...

Thanks, not so very easy when you do not have the residence of Flap.

something different:

Tropics. SE Asia. Possibly driving on the left. Malaysia?

Is that a (upside-down) Gabonese flag hanging from the lamppost? If so I'll take a shot at Libreville.I'm also thinking the Michelin advert might point to somewhere in the francosphere...

jensdad 5th Aug 2020 23:01

Although the airport sign is in Anglais, so maybe not. Hmmm.

That VCR (glasshouse) was originally on the tower at Blackbushe, being moved to Edinburgh after the MoA summariily closed Blackbushe in May 1960.
