There are a number of requests to have the airports updated on this site dating back more than 6 months which have not been actioned. So much for Airport Data?

Peter,

My understanding is that this area is looked after solely by Ken himself.

I will contact him to bring to his attention your request and concern.

Might be a good idea, but there is a caveat.

Some FAA, IATA, or ICAO ID's have been dropped, deleted or changed.
Uploading photos from these 'missing' ID's does not add a location to the image banner.
It then has to be added manually into the photo comments, which I believe precludes some site search for aircraft at these airports (photos shown, under a particular airport, profile)

An example: Old (now closed) Pitman Airport ID: 24N has been transferred to the Jicarilla Apache Nation field in Dulce NM. another, NXX or KNXX which was Willow Grove NAS has been deleted.

I'm all for updates to the Airport ID database, but would like to keep the older IDs in the database for future image uploads...


John
