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.

This was a recent photo, as the rules ask - so not ALA.

And not DBV, ACE, RAK, PMO or CTA either.

I think another clue will be in order tomorrow if nobody gets this overnight.

I'll hazard a guess and say it is ZRH.
I think it's a C-27.

But finally, it was indeed JMK - a location that I think has been much guessed in the past but has never actually featured.

The next clue would have been the following photo, whose background might be more recognisable by those who have been there as it's what you look at when you're by the gates waiting to board (although seldom by climbing the stairs up on to the wing):-

Well, the amount of cameras per sq foot makes it look like a British airport (I know I am biased) if not for those little VAC units at every window (or are they heaters?)
