Hi all,

I came across this fun game and I thought I would share it here.

All Airports in the world have a three letter identification name. Taking the initials of your own name, what is your airport?

Mine is -

MAM - General Servando Canales International Airport Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico

Mark.

PBC Puebla International Airport aka Hermanos Serdan International Airport aka Huejotsingo Airport.

Why three names, no idea.

Boalang Airport, Celebes Islands, Indonesia. It was probably subject to ground attack in WWII - and that would most likely be its main claim to fame.

I don't have a middle name but using the first three letters of my first name (DAV) gives me Enrique Malek International Airport in David, Panama!

The one I use most is BDL - Bradley International Airport serving Hartford/Springfield
but..
I'm about two hours from BOS - Boston -Logan International
Two hours from EWS - Newark - Liberty International
And I pretty much ignore JFK and LGA - New York John F. Kennedy and New York LaGuardia because they are next to impossible to get to

My favourite airport code is YYZ (Toronto - Pearson - fellow Rush fans will relate, I'm sure)

@djtemplar - Thanks for the link.

Using the initials I normally use gives Kontum Airport, Kontum, Vietnam.

And the alternative set gives Cengiz Topel Airport which is somewhere in Turkey!
