Were these photos taken by Professor Kennedy? They look a bit familiar. There is little doubt in my mind that they are of the crash site.
What have you discovered about Qatrana airfield? My feeling is that it is covered by the modern cemetery that is there now, but that my great-uncle was buried there somewhere.
I have a photo of Qatrana Station and turnpike taken from a low flying (German or Turkish) aircraft in 1918 if you are interested.
The photographs were taken by members of the team lead by Prof. David Kennedy and Bob Bewley, I am not certian who the photography was but the APAAME Flickr site will giive youy this detail of you need it.
As for the location of the Ottoman airfield at Qatrana it may be under the cemetry but I suspect it is in the area 100m east of the cemetry and 300 north east of the station complex. I will be in the area in 3 weeks time and hope to be able to walk over the area but that will depend on plans made when we arrive in Jordan.
You say that " have a photo of Qatrana Station and turnpike taken from a low flying (German or Turkish) aircraft in 1918 if you are interested." I am always interested in seeing photographs from the period and It would be good to see this one if you are able to send it . Thanks
