Fiedl 'ident' in CSV file uses old ICAO (HSSS)

I am reporting that the CSV dump of the airport DB for the 'ident' field still uses the old ICAO, HSSS, instead of the new one, HSSK.

(Probably 'keyword' needs changing too)

My understanding is that the 'ident' field is about ICAO code, from the Data dictionary page (

"The text identifier used in the OurAirports URL. This will be the ICAO code if available. Otherwise, it will be a local airport code (if no conflict), or if nothing else is available, an internally-generated code starting with the ISO2 country code, followed by a dash and a four-digit number."

Wadi Seidna confirmation

Further to the comment placed on these pages on 29.09.2010 that the ex raf airstrip at Wadi Seidna was infact 10nm to the west of the current airbase - has this been confirmed as true ? This is rather confusing - was this airfield moved completely or is this a wrong statement ? barry.

Respect les staff or emgration officers

I arrived at Khartoum airport with great happiness after 12 year's abroad from my home land Africa. But after I arrived it changed to the worst day of my life, I arrived with all right documents and visa from Sudan embassy in uk. With out any reason I refused to inter to Khartoum. I guas the reason may be I am African or corrupted officers. I have senn non African passengers they go through with out any problem. But I left Khartoum just after one hour from my arrival with disrespects staff uneducated.i fill sorry forthem. And sham on them just like animals. I don't know if they are in21st century. There are many things to say about them but for now animals is enough.

Former RAF station

Wadi Seidna (or Wadi Saidna) was an RAF station before Sudanese independence. I believe that this is still an active military base for Sudan's air force.
