Can you confirm that the data came from sources compliant with the license terms, and not from sources such as Google Maps that don't allow their data to be used in OSM?  The information at
<http://www.ourairports.com/about.html> indicates that at least some of the ourairports.com data came from Google.

My first round of deletions have completed (changeset 6688755).

It resulted in the deletion of 921 nodes.

Any of the nodes that I added that was within 0.1' of any existing 
node/way tagged as aeroway='aerodrome' has been removed.

I will be performing the same for aeroway='helipad' shortly.

I will also be asking users who've emailed me privately to see if they 
can confirm that the clean-up worked in their areas.

Thanks for your patience.
