Looks a lot like an old airfield west of Palmdale that I almost bought. On the road now so will have to check my files when I'm back at home.

That was my next thought Carlos. A US training field, or maybe the Army acceptance facility, the aircraft were made in Hawthorne.

March AFB?

added in edit: Kipapa Airfield, Hawaii.

Always had a fascination with Northrop aircraft, ever since attending Northrop Tech way back in the last century. Just needed to dig a little.

OK, need the name of the building and the city or town.

Way too easy, already got two correct answers in PM.

Chris - not Europe, but the flowers in front are from Europe. That's your clue today.

Correct! PM sent.

The tulips in front are a gift each year from Holland.

Is not the back ground building the same one as the one the saucer is on?

Looking at the houses and other buildings in the foreground I'd say Netherlands (Holland)

That's it :)

"De Inktpot" is -as far as i know- the biggest brick-building in the Netherlands and over 90 years old!
Utrecht is a very cool city imo.
