I am looking for a specific photo / appreciate help

Thu Jul 18, 2019 12:11 pm

Hello everyone,
I would like to ask you for a big help for me.
On my previous account (very old one, not active anymore) several years ago I have found on your site (airliners.net) beautiful airport overview photo which I placed on my wallpaper.
Unfortunately it was couple years ago. I tried to find it but I can't.
Can you help me?

As far as I remember it was a photo of airport overview (small, with 1 runway only), scenery was like fjords / mountain / scandinavia / norway and the time was about evening or morning (the runway lights were on) and the sky was purple (sunset or sunrise). Runway was probably on a small island or cape.
Apologize for my painting skills but I will try to show you on the screen:

I know that image is pathetic but You are my last hope.
I checked scandinavian and canadian airports but without luck.
Like I wrote earlier - vivid grass around runway, some colorful (scandinavian like) houses, runway buildings (small runway), forest, purple sky, beautiful mountain view.

I'd appreciate the help.

I've looked at Norway, Iceland and Greenland, but nothing matches your painted scene yet. Will try to look again later.

Dutchspotter1 - its similar of course, but its not that :((

I am quite sure that maybe it was photo of known norway~/ scandinavian airport but with great visual weather (its weird I can't find it here)

These are the photos I've found that bear some resemblance in one way or another to your description or sketch:







I expanded the search to Chile and Argentina (just thinking of countries that may have coastal airports with mountains in the background).
I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".

Thank you, I appreciate it, but its not it.
I am pretty sure that it was in the evening / morning cause sky was purple. Maybe it will help...

This link takes you to all 'airport view' photos, sorted from oldest to newest. It's only 842 pages :biggrin:
https://www.airliners.net/search?photoC ... lay=detail

Although there is a chance that the photo got deleted on request of the photographer, so no idea if the photo you're looking for is still in the database.

A lot to do ;) But it could be like you said that the file could be deleted.
I am wondering what phrase I can type in google to find it, any ideas?
