"Ford Island Nalf" Or "Pacific Aviation Museum"

Wed Dec 08, 2010 2:17 am

I took some shots at the Pacific Aviation Museum at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii earlier today, and I'm wondering what the location information is supposed to look like if I decide to upload any of them. There are existing photos from the museum in the DB listed under both "Ford Island - NALF Naval Auxiliary Landing Field (NPS)" and "Off-Airport - Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbour".

I would consider the first option as it was a landing site, and has a runway, etc.

Perhaps, but wasn't the airfield and runway shut down in 1999?

Then '(closed)' should be added to the airfield name.

I talked to the editors about how this location, a closed seaplane station, and I was advised this format was preferred, to reflect the location's history.

Hi Trevor,

I uploaded my pictures from the museum under the first option, simply sticking to other photos in the database.

If you want to make sure, the best thing is, as Peter did, to contact the editors under editors@airliners.net

They'll be most willing to assist you in this matter and change the info accordingly, if necessary.

Kind Regards,

Thierry
