RAF Broadwell & EGVN correct. Wish I had a pint for every time I have flown over there.

RegDep -- Nicely done!

Now, how do you pronounce "Iz "objektivnih" razloga postavljamo.."?

v3m,

how do you pronounce "Iz "objektivnih" razloga postavljamo.."?
I don't. I dont know how to pronounce serbian (which I think the language is called). It is just a quote from the site that features the picture (and the blogger's location reads: Mauritius, soon or later).

The GoogleTranslate says it means something like "for the sake of objectivity I post a picture of the old and new tower (of the) Directorate of Civil Aviation of the Republic of Serbia".

Indulge me by NOT looking at the urls for these two, which are sometimes mistaken for one another by students.

OAK is correct for the second pix, the other is slightly south.

I think the phrase "Do you see a large tank?" was used sometimes.

Once, I was cleared to land at an OAK general aviation runway by flying from the southwest over the SF Bay and the main runway. Spooky to be the only one in that airspace.

Once did a delivery to Romsey Airfield in Victoria, Australia and elected to land on Rwy 33. Unfortunately, local knowledge had it that the only permissible landing direction on that strip was Rwy 15 because of the presence of the Australian Army Proving Ground at Monagetta tracks of which were within 300 metres of the threshold (ERSA didn't - and still doesn't - mention that fact).

So, the question "Can you see a large tank" was quite apposite - a feckin great Leopard tank with a plume of dust behind it and an equally feckin great gun pointed straight at me!

Not the sort of tank I had in mind, but times change.
