Can anyone help me to identify this airport?
I took the picture while flying with Ryanair from Pisa to Prestwick. The view is facing East. I'm guessing it must be in the Italian,French,Swiss border area.Any help greatly appreciated.

it should be the old airport of Brienz in the east of the lake brienz (brienzersee). on the top of your picture you see the lake of thun (thunersee). between the two lakes is Interlaken. there is also an old airport. now, there is the Mistery Park from Erich von Däniken.

Just got back from work to find that while I have been out earning a living (?) lots of you have been busy trying to work out which airport I photographed.
Thanks to you all!
I've taken out the old atlas and have to say that it sure looks like Meiringen!
