Guess The Airport Part IV

Sat Dec 10, 2005 12:10 am

I'll bet it's a long time before any of you guess where this one was taken.

Good lord man! At least show part of the terminal as a clue. Unless of course there is no terminal.

There is a clue in the picture. Not so much as to where the picture is, but rather, where it ISN'T. It rules out a lot of airports. Let's see if you can find it.

Right! So right away that eliminates pretty much everything east of the Rockies except for the possibility that the picture might have been taken somewhere in Tennessee or the Appalachians.

Palm trees in the background? Perhaps Cancun or Cozumel?

Yes, I know the way to San Jose. From where I live, take 91 West to the 5 north. Stay on the 5 all the way up the Grapevine until the 99 split. Take 5 north past Kettleman City until I reach Los Banos Junction. Go west over Pacheco Pass until I hit the 101 in Gilroy. Go north on the 101 about 40 miles or so and you drive rigght into San Jose.

A little off-topic, but when did G4 have DC-9-10s? And where were they flown?

as far as I know that was the -20, wich was designed for SAS (as was the -40 I believe)

The -21 was known as the hot-rod DC-9, because it had the fuselage (and therefore weight) of the -10 series nine, but the wings and engines of the larger -30 series. Not many were built, and all started life with Scandinavian. Several made it out of Scandinavia to the US and were operated by ValuJet and Allegiant Air. Allegiant Air have now retired their -21 to Victorville, where it can be seen with a 757, a TWA 717 and a former American/Reno Air MD-80 in the background

naw.....keep guessing. I want to see someone insist on the location, rather than just random guesses.

Although I should point out that it's posisble someone has already done that.

Or possibly not.

Well, the visible engine looks like the intake has been covered up, so I am going to guess VCV.

It's not VCV, nor do I think it's FAT. An aerial view of FAT shows more of desert & industrial background than the trees shown in the first pic. I however, have no clue where it is...

I'd rule out FAT as well. Look at the trees in the background - there is not a single palm tree visible....

After a few hours I can't resist.

The foothills and the military ammunition bunker in the background should give hints. And the white block over the nose might leave no "Gap" but definitely gives it away.

I would have thought the trees at the golf course behind the AWX RJ would help too but I guess not.

So compare it to this:

It's definitely FAT. Most likely before/during construction of the new terminal since the apron was redone.

What a station identifer...LOL!

Gotta wonder about the original pic...what's up with the pylons around the A/C? Does someone actually think this is going to prevent unfortunate encounters with ground equipment or a hapless ramp worker from walking into the plane?  spin

Quoting KELPkid (Reply 39):

The aircraft used to park on the GA ramp since Allegiant's original headquarters in Fresno opened onto the GA ramp. So they dealt with a lot of "amateurs" in that area who might not always judge things as well as an airline employee. Just a little visual aid.

According to Airliners Magazine, this specific aircraft was initially used by Allegiant to fly between LAS, FAT, BUR, and TVL

From the above, I think we can conclude that FAT is the best answer ...

Also consider the original post is by someone in Southern California. He most likely took the picture, since he knows the day it was taken on ("same day" as the AW CRJ)

Enough ... can we do Part V now ?  Smile
