Thu May 26, 2011 9:54 pm

Hi all,

I took this picture in flight between London Gatwick and Barcelona, more or less 25 minutes after the take off. Can you help me, please? I have used Google Earth in order to find it but unsuccesfuly.

Regards,

35km North of Chartres, but it is Senonches not Champhol.
Champhol is on the outskirts of the town of Chartres

Quoting dendrobatid (Reply 3):

Having dug a little deeper it seems it's actually Dreux Louvilliers, ex-USAF but in mothballs since being returned to France in 1967 because of conflicts with Orly airspace.
