    Didn’t we have a guess that airport thread here once upon a time?
    Sorry for the poor picture but this is from 8-9 miles out with an iPhone.
    On a foggy/smoggy day.
    From the wrong direction.

    Yea it looks like my non-corrected vision. From what I can make out in the foreground, I’d guess somewhere in California.

    Re @wilkersk’s photo.

    Is it Asphalt? Macadam? Aggregate? Cement?

    (Am I getting warm ... ? :D )

    Is that Angel Fire? It looks like KLAM but is missing the drop off (and you wouldn’t be approaching from that side).

    There’s a vague resemblance to Miramar looking northeast.

    Only vague? I know it looks weird now that it’s not Blue and Gold, but that’s the airport formerly known as NAS (now MCAS) Miramar.

    It is. kapf
    Here is Naples on a map so folks can get a better geo idea.
    I flew Naples - N'awlins; a little overwater flying.
    The airport is very easy to get in and out, competent & patient controllers, it has a high volume of traffic on holidays. One FBO has no fuel but does park - they get the competitor to drive a truck over (but I was told to expect delays). Clean tidy buildings and yards. Palm trees everywhere.

    Who is next?
    Post a map when your airport is named so we can know more about it!

    There's plenty of places to park yet at Naples from those photos. I've seen a lot worse.
