Of course that would be wonderful but there was an import of "airports"
which has placed about 500 remote airstrips on the australian sector of
the map, all marked as "airport" which is quite untrue.
There isn't suitable aerial imagery to copy and trace 
and it is very difficult to decide what to just eliminate and what to
try and place more accurately - because a lot of those i have been able
to locate are several kilometres away from "home"
