Having a hard time figuring out what sort of aircraft this is, and more specifically what it is doing in the middle of a field!

Any thoughts??

Maybe a Fokker F-27 Friendship?

Here's an 'off-airport' F-27 parked near those coordinates.

I thought the tail looked like a T-tail, so I'm guessing a DHC-5 Caribou. Here's a 3-view http://www.aviastar.org/pictures/canada/dehavilland_buffalo.gif to compare.

But Diamond could be right since it's "off airport".

I think it is that F-27. If you look immediately infront of the nose radome on the Anet pic you can see the strip of water that shows in the GE image

You guys are brilliant! Thanks...I think it must be the F-27.

Best regards

Agreed. If you look closely at the image, one can see shrubs/bushes that are off to the right as observed in the image that the op provided for us.
