Identification Longshot/Talking Point 321

Good Evening All.
Something for the aviation buffs amongst you. I think I recognise the types of aircraft shown (it doesn’t identify them on the postcard) but I am pretty sure that this won’t pose a problem, however the location might prove to be a little harder to pin-point. An early clue, it is not in Great Britain.

it is not in Great Britain.

and I thought that was the Jersey flag at the rear of the building :0(

Jersey is not part of G.B. so you are correct, Well Done.States of Jersey Airport.

A small French airfield on the western Channel coast, perhaps Cherbourg?
The planes are so much easier to name!

It has to be Jersey or Scotland.
So I will go for the Orkney Isles.

Not in GB never noticed that.
Well done Fruit Bat /\0/\ that was a quickie.

The Rapide was the first aircraft I ever flew in, I Pontius was in charge up front!
