Game: At Which Airport Am I?

Sun Jun 06, 2010 10:38 pm

At which airport would I be if the distances from this airport to other airports are (in Great Circle Mapper mileage)?:
ICN 3017
FRA 2920
ADD 2900

Here is another airport to guess:
MIA 2675
LAX 2941
LHR 2526

Feel free to add to these.

Good guesses. But, not correct. You are guessing in the right country though.

Correct! TAS must be the most centrally located major airport on Eurasia.

Quoting j0rdan (Reply 3):
YFB

Correct again! The very far north YFB gets some interesting diversions due to its location on the Europe-West Coast route.

Correct! Diego Garcia, located in the Indian Ocean south of the Maldives, is a very strategic, restricted-access airport for the U.S./U.K. military. Yet, I doubt most Americans/British have ever heard of it.

Very very close. SNA and KGI are correct the third airport is X26 nm Northwest from BHX and 9X nm from BFS.


I'm actually surprised someone got this close I tried it the other night and came up with at least 50 different airports however only 1 was in europe

It would be interesting to see if this could be done without getting out of order with a connection. Perhaps city name alphabetical order would be easier than airport code order? Country name order would be fun but impossible without connections (Yemen to Zambia/Zimbabwe).
