Guess The Airport

Recommended Posts

@John-Outstanding and clever clues sir. :thum:  You really stymied the members for awhile with this one. My biggest obstacle was I thought the clue about the major belligerents referred to our enemies and did not include all of the good guys too.

 

@Andrew- Well done sir. :thum: Here I was thinking the special tool was the wine. The wife was wondering why I went through two bottles last night. :D

As promised and well deserved:

Welcome, Gannet. You must be prescient to guess Andrew's next airport, as he's yet to give us a clue! :thum:

Mind you, at least it will remind Andrew to post... ANDREW!!! :whis:

Cheers - Dai. :cool:

Sorry guys.  I have been trying to get my airport sorted out, but got caught with a couple of reviews and life in general.  It has taken far too long so if someone wants to jump in, please save me from this humiliation.  :th_blush:

 

I will be better prepared and waiting next time around.

 

Cheers

Andrew

I am on it as well John. I thought I had all the airports, but the airport that came out of it was not an airport or even a word in the English language!

I miss this feature, which has gone kind of dormant.  I promised Mutley when he was here I was going to kick this off again soon, so here goes!

 

Guess the Airport

 

Clues:

  • You've never heard of it.
  • It has a 3-character ICAO code.
  • The images and data are from stock FSX-SE and are likely the same in FSX and P3D.
  • Scenery complexity is set to Extremely Dense, so you're seeing everything that's there.
  • The top-down image may have been rotated - OK, it has been.
  • It's in the northern hemisphere.
  • Magnetic variation is large.
  • An airport just south is a candidate for my Unfortunate ICAO Codes list.
  • Airport elevation is 1,000 < X < 2000 feet MSL.

That's enough for now.  More clues in a few days if no one has it.

Hmmm - no action here at all.

 

Here are more clues to make it a little easier...

 

  • Runway length is < 3000'
  • Airport name references a body of water
  • Longitude is West (with the above clues, that narrows it down to 1/4 of the planet)
