In the ICAO's document "Location Indicators ..." of 2006 I see the record "ZWAX - A'xialanshankou, China". Long search found no city of that name, but there is one place in the China with a name _like_ that. It is Ala Shankou (45.17, 82.56). Not so far from it on the Googlemaps you can see the airport, that not mentioned in the various lists and references (44.9, 82.3). It has 1 runway about 2700 m long. I found one note about this AP : http://www.sourcejuice.com/1350260/2010/07/11/Alashankou-Bole-Airport-ended-without-Civil-Aviation-Maritime-navigation/. Among other things, it says that the first flight was adopted in 2009, 3 years after the release of the aforementioned document ICAO. My guess is that this airport is assigned code ZWAX.
