The idea is to place an picture/pictures taken at or from an airport where you have been, the person making the correct guess then gets a turn.
So here goes...

Same longitude (E/W), or same latitude (N/S)?

Same latitude - Wellington, NZ

Same longitude  - King George island airport, Antarctic Peninsula (and I'd like to know the story of how you got there!)

Stanley in the Falkland Islands?

I do not think that dying is a good idea.
Living doing something that you love is a good idea.
Living until you die is a good idea. If living happens to kill you it means you made a mistake, but we are human, and humans make mistakes, so go for it, enjoy it, live until you die, rather than not living for your whole life.

Wrong continent and too far south. e/w = longitude. Rio Gallegos is about the same longitude as the Falklands btw. Has a similar look terminal building too. ;)

Had to try! :)

So, is it Rio Gallegos? Would explain the glacier bits (I think, been a while since I was there).

Nice one, tricky!

About the same, does this mean within a couple of degrees or are you talking minutes?

Not Rio Gallegos, that is on the coast of Argentina. This one is inland in the Andes. The "sea" is a glacier lake...
