Looks like the Database is mixing ORK with ORK

North Little Rock Municipal Airport -USA:
http://www.airport-data.com/airport/photo/006357.html
and
Cork International Airport - Ireland:
http://www.airport-data.com/world-airports/EICK-ORK/

and batching all of the images, together, under KORK 's data page..

Looks like a job for Ken!

I didn't think IATA / ICAO did duplicate ID's:

North little Rock (ORK) was formerly coded 1M1 . Recently re-coded ORK (KORK) and Cork (Chorcai) Ireland is also coded ORK (EICK) . Do not know the date of change.
Maybe duplicate codes allowed, because they are on separate continents? or because two different agencies are handling the 3-letter codes?

I think the ORK for North Little Rock was actually an FAA code, while ORK for Cork Ireland is IATA code. Another example is PVG:

Hampton Roads Executive Airport, VA http://www.airport-data.com/airport/PVG/

Shanghai Pudong International, China http://www.airport-data.com/world-airports/ZSPD-PVG/

I am aware of this issue, but yet to come up with a feasible solution.
