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 itís 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.

I take it that you're seeing the photo upside-down? I've tried to get it the right way up, but for some reason it refuses to do so consistently.

It's not CPT, WDH or SKG.

Here's a repeat to try to get it the right way up for those who were seeing it upside down:-

Tail of a plane (one with a white dot) drives me crazy; it looks very familiar, but I can't quite put my finger on it.
I'll hazard a guess and say it is ZRH.

No, not SCL, SOF, PSA, CFU, AGP or ZRH.

For a small first clue, that BA aircraft is an Airbus.

But that tells you more than that it's short-haul: it's also not southern Africa short-haul!

Sorry, not ZTH.

ALA, as there are small rear engined and medium large propeller aeroplanes in view. ALA is Almaty. BD used to fly from there and when BA took them over so too did they!
