Thanks for reminding me Gerold, I had completely forgotten.

Mates, I fear this post is on hold - too early. We still have some Orbx airfields left, like this one:

That was indeed too easy, I just saw it after uploading. Do you want to add a new one or should I try?

Yeah why not ? Gerold --  there is a tiny clue

Though I do not get the clue, I would think of YMMB Moorabbin?

You are correct of course - the tiny clue was to zoom in on the blue sign over the

Royal Victoria Flying Club Office - my Alma Marta  - for my PPL 50 years ago

I could not zoom in that much to read the tiny hint, but the tower was significant enough. Though Gold Coast is quite comparable...

Here is my next one. With a big hint on it - you can´t alwys hide them when taxiiang along.

Hmmm, probably too many RFDS bases around - is there another hint required? OK: It is freeware, but I would love to pay for an updated version.

If that's freeware - it's very good - but not much of a clue - since all my airports are Orbx

 

Yes there are many FDS bases  - but this looks so posh - it might be Charleville - but then again

it might be Cloncurry ??

Great thread, I recognize a number of locations here from real life and from Orbx, or maybe the other way around. Here is another one from a couple of years ago.

Uhm, we're still at Gerold's airfield. Launceston?

Fully correct, Ben. If you like you may continue here...

... unless Graeme is faster? I don´t mind, as long as the beautiful pictures continue (and as long the Orbx portfolio is big enough...).

This is quite possibly the most amazing thread ever on these forums... wow.

 

I am trying to think of any Orbx fields that I've been to - grew up near many and have driven right past at least a dozen of them... but actually having visited them... hmmm.  Probably just KMRY I guess.  Took a few lessons there at Navy Flying Club on the north ramp.  But sadly, no photos to prove it (it was back in 1988), just amazing memories.

 

Wait - San Diego!! In 1987 I actually took a flight that originated and terminated at Orbx airports!  KSAN - KMRY!  well, no maybe I changed planes at LAX.... getting old, guys!

 

And YMML Melbin… I did get down that way once.  Another amazing memory - driving on the other side of the road for a week, that was worth the ticket alone.

Wow, that is hard, Ben. Nothing to recognize for me, but at least I can narrow the list: It is right hand road traffic there, so Australia and that island in the north sea are out of scope ...

Gerold put the challenge down. Only normally happens biannually. It's in Oz. ......  and it's normally a busy runway in the first week of March. Easy!

Cheers

Graeme :)

Uhm, Boetie, first you must resolve mine. ;)

Yours is Avalon BTW.

Unfortunately the quest from Ben is still unsolved...

May I just throw ESSA Arlanda in the discussion?

Of course yes Avalon. Airshow now postponed until November 2021. Ben is it in Europe?

Great thread BTW.

Looks definitely like Brisbane when I compare it to my own photo a few months back :)

You got it Brian. It was indeed taken from the same holding point that you visited. When have you been there?

And, more important, are you in a position to post another quest?

Thank Gerold, I arrived there on December 26th last year. Here is another one from last year (maybe too easy:-) 

 

Have a lovely weekend all.

Ah, I have been there much earlier, end of September. So no close miss...

A fantastic picture of CAC8 Nanaimo, I guess?

Correct :) Another wonderful trip and great to see in real life on board the Otter. I hope you enjoyed Brisbane and Australia as much as I did Gerold.
