A friend of mine asked for some help identifying the airport in the picture below. He needs it for a geocache.

Google reverse image search was, perhaps unsurprisingly, not very helpful. We've spent some time on Google maps, but there are many airports :-). Other than that, I'm really out of ideas.

We have some reason to believe that it is located in Europe, presumably excluding Turkey and Russia.

    $\begingroup$ Could you provide the GC code for the geocache? That might give more clues. $\endgroup$ – CatchAsCatchCan Apr 18 at 0:40
  • $\begingroup$ @CatchAsCatchCan It's a German geocache and it doesn't have a GC code AFAIK, will check, though. Anyway, we've found it, will post an answer :-). $\endgroup$ – user35915 Apr 18 at 8:33
  • $\begingroup$ Besides the simple fact that his is an airport, what does the question have to do with aviation? $\endgroup$ – Michael Hall Apr 18 at 17:34

    $\begingroup$ @MichaelHall I wasn't sure if it was going to be on topic, but the existence of the airport-identification tag settled it for me. $\endgroup$ – user35915 Apr 19 at 10:16

Brute forcing Google maps finally paid off. It's Bordeaux airport:

    $\begingroup$ Wow, nice finding. I thought it might be in France because there are many roundabouts in the vicinity but that was merely a guess. $\endgroup$ – PerlDuck Apr 18 at 8:56
