There are quite a few airstrips or disused airfields in the Norfolk area which are not covered by airport codes, so is there anything else to record such sightings under. e.g Felthorpe, Northrepps/Cromer, Tibenham, RAF Sculthorpe, etc. Do I just find a code that has not be used or have you a system already in use.

Hi Guys

Is there a system in place for the recording of sightings from airstips/fields not covered

by ICAO or IATA codes.

RAF Sculthorpe is in the database, it's ICAO code is EGUP .

Unfortunately, without an ICAO code, there's no way to find the others in the database. In this case, you can use OFF to record an off airport sighting.

I've put OFF in, and on the Map it shows up as KOFF - Offcut Air force base. Also on map OTT has turned up as GOTT and XMU has turned up as FXMU. I added AYH for Alconbury and that appears as Papua/New guinea on the map.

On the "airport" box where you put your code,it will only take 4 letters. Could that be extended to take more letters, so you could spell out an airstrip/field.
