As DaveReidUK says, there probably isn't a definitive answer anywhere, but I'll go for Farnborough in the UK, with Oshkosh as world no.1.

I'm not sure what the answer to the question is, but the old spotter in me yearns for the days before my local airport, Newcastle, became an endless succession of 737's and A320-series.

Hi SLB, I see where you're coming from with the Islanders, but unfortunately not. This is in the UK proper (England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland) as opposed to a UK overseas territory.

Haha, yes, the props could do with a bit of work. Rendering rotating props in stained glass is probably hard work, I guess.

Hi I42. No, the country in which this airfield is situated doesn't have any current or recent volcanic activity. Although I did think those marks on the landscape would be a nice red herring :)
