Rules of play
The Rules are below, the main one being. Please, only one photo at a time until we have a confirmed correct answer. It makes it much easier to keep track of.
  1. Take an obscure photo of a BA location you are currently in (or have visited recently)
  2. Post on this thread and add a clue (if you feel it’s required)
    The goal is then to be the first person to correctly guess the location.
  3. The OP confirms who has the first correct guess
  4. The OP updates the win to the Wiki
    If the winner has not won before, their name is entered and the post date/time they won is added below. If the winner has won before, the date and time of the post they won is added below their name. The post number should be that of the post containing the photo (not the post containing the correct guess).
    USER NAME
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    etc. etc
  5. To try and keep it further within the remit of the forum, I think double points should be awarded in the event that the OP can get a BA logo into the photo without giving the game away.
  6. Multiple guesses are allowed, but must be turn about with other members and at least 10 mins apart
  7. Please try and keep it to one live photo at a time.

Guessing it could be Preveza (PVK) where the summer daily flight disgorges onto the tarmac?

I don't think PVK has started yet, but no.

Have a look on the sides of the photo.

Tail markins on the LH edge looked like Air Corsica.

Early Saturday morning destination from LHR.

Very astute, well done.

Here is a better photo.



I was somewhat struck by the fact that I was using the same runway used by Antoine de St-Exupéry nearly 75 years ago on his final flight. He should be made patron saint of Flyertalkers, he wrote Le Petit Prince, hence the asteroid clue.

PrimaVista, alex67500 and squawk like this.

Where was I this weekend. I could't fly there on BA but I could on OW. In recognition of this, I humbly offer two photo clues to assist.


Not Winchester Cathedral

Good place for DYKWIAs to cool off!
