Fred - you've nailed it; it is the village of Deshaies on Guadeloupe. The next picture would have been of the church which many would recognize from the "Death in Paradise" television series.

Could this be the airport on St. Kitts - it looks like it might be there (I used to be a pilot so I tend to remember approaches and runways)

Carol - If I was correct I was going to post a St. Barths shot as the next picture; that one is very, very different and much more difficult. I'm not sure if I am correct about St. Kitts, though - I think that runway had a taxiway... but it does have a significant upwards slant when coming in or taking off in that direction.

Zanshin--Well, I thought when I posted it, that it looked too GREEN for St. Barts. Didn't realize you were also a pilot!

Carol - I flew gliders (competitively, even flew for the USA team at the worlds years ago) and single-engine until recently. I've looked at the St. Barths approach from the top the hill several times and don't know if I could land there even in optimal conditions in the type of aircraft I'm used to. Although one of the gliders I flew had 90° dive brakes/flaps and I could land that baby on a postage stamp...

Neither of the above 2 Saints - Kitts or Barts. Here's another hint but most of my pictures are dead giveaways.

The vegetation leads me to think Caribbean. But it isn't Saba and St. Kitts and St. Barths are out. St. Thomas, Beef Island, St. Martin (both airports), Antigua and Guadeloupe are out. Îles des Saintes abuts on the sea, Dominica's two runways are also at sea level ...

WAG - Mustique?

Saba is supposed to be very 'interesting' so I'm guessing at that.

I'm going to be away from my computer for a few hours, so here is a pretty good clue. I will have my phone so I can respond to answers.

"V2" is Antigua and it certainly isn't Antigua or Barbuda! The closest island that might have an airport like that is Montserrat. I haven't seen that airport but there's nothing else I can think of that is in range of a helicopter....

Montserrat is correct. The background is not a thunderstorm but a cloud of smoke from the volcano. You are up.

Francais in Cuba?

I realized my error in the previous post and corrected it - this location is to the east and south of Cuba smile

Marie Galante? A SWAG from a Francais speaking place. ("S" is for statistical which is different than regular WAG).

Not Marie Galante, but you are close. This fort (finally one not named after Napoleon) was built to defend against the British. This picture is taken from the same location but turned counterclockwise and facing SSE

Two of them (sort of), in fact. The one you thought might be the one in these pictures is, unfortunately, called "Fort Napoléon des Saintes" smile The other is on Cabrit island and I don't think it has name, but it isn't it...

Marie Galante, the Îles des Saintes and even Basse-Terre on Guadeloupe can all be seen in the pictures. So which town is the fort in? Or what is the fort's name? The fort protected this area:

xrayman67 - Yes, "Pointe à Pitre" would have been sufficient, or perhaps even "Guadeloupe" but you've nailed it exactly.
