Since autofill wasn't available for AGS, I tried to best guess with other examples, so I put "Augusta - Bush Field (AGS / KAGS)"

Well, I just found a picture today

that has it as "Augusta - Regional / Bush Field (AGS / KAGS)"

Since the full name of it is Augusta Regional Airport at Bush Field, I was wondering if I should send a correct info on my picture or if it's just fine as it is.

Thanks,

Scotty

Hi Scotty,

As it is a database with Keyword searches, it is always better to have the exact same name for airports. However, we observe variants when the auto-fill gives nothing. As there are only 2 photos at KAGS, I would suggest to align Your location name to the existing one. You may do so by using the "Correct Information" link.

Another suggestion, when the auto-fill gives no result, is to use the advanced search function and type the airport code (either ICAO 4 letters or IATA 3 letters) in the "Location" field. You could get results even if the auto-fill gives nothing.

Hope it helps. Editors might give their opinion on this.

Cheers
Patrick
