ICAO Codes Which Are Words!

I got another little idea for a game and to engage everyone in some active fun and discussion!

Badically, find some airport ICAOs that are either funny or are a real word and maybe you’ll learn a new airport or have a laugh!

I’ll start with LICK, in Italy. A small airport in the south called Scalea.

I have a very interesting one.

Værøy Airport, Norway, was shut down after a fatal accident in the 90s, after. Wideroe Twin Otter crashed. The ICAO was ENVY. Spoooky.

I don’t think anyone was envious that a plane crashed but weird anyhow.

I didn’t mean it in that way. I just thought of it in the way that envy is a negative word and the situation was negative.
