I'm not a very good judge of whether something is easy or not, since I suck at this.

Anyway, here goes!

Quoting MarshalN (Reply 2):
See? Too easy

The terminal shape gave it away mostly, plus the location of the US plane. PVD is also the closest airport to me.

I suppose if I didn't include the main body part of the terminal it might be much harder, since that way it'll look more generic, but I didn't want to make it impossible, which I thought it would if I zoomed in too much

Nope, but thanks for guessing!  Smile

It's near a major city, so not in the middle of nowhere (i.e. not anywhere in Montana!). It's obviously not that city's primary airport. That's another hint.

No, it's not. Is the North Central Airport (KSFZ I think, just googled it) this one?

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b257/MarshalN/NorthCentral.jpg

By major city... it's not exactly on the scale of New York or Boston, but just a city that people will all recognize and know.

And it's not on the West Coast, if that's any help.

Had it from the first picture. I've flown in there many times pounding the circuit in Cessna 150s and 172s (many years ago now).

This might help. It's near a body of water, in fact, as you can see, it's right on the edge of one.
