The airports were:

LFW  id="26608223" lat="6.16555555555556" lon="1.25444444444444"
NSI  id="26608660" lat="3.7225" lon="11.5533333333333"
TMS  id="26608669" lat="0.378055555555556" lon="6.71222222222222" (3 errors)
SJO  id="26608915" lat="9.99388888888889" lon="-84.2088888888889"
BSB  id="26608961" lat="-15.8711111111111" lon="-47.9186111111111"
ASU  id="26608969" lat="-25.2397222222222" lon="-57.5191666666667"
BOG  id="26608971" lat="4.70305555555556" lon="-74.1383333333333"

(7, not 9, sorry)

and for completeness, the ways were

Hasenwinkeler Stra...   id="4269065"
Volkersbrunner Stra...  id="4271908"
Schollbrunn             id="4431539"

which just demonstrates that I can't add up to 10 (I'd counted TMS  x 3)
