KRAP is the closest major airport.

Is that runway inside the hole (seeing though the ground?)

SD77 is the airport.

What is the four digit ICAO of this airport? I imagine it’s the thing to do with auto gen airports imported from x-plane. When you send the ICAO of the airport over I’ll get a supervisor to fix it in IFAET

I don’t see any rather large holes on Google Maps, so I believe it’s just a terrain glitch.

Hi! This is SD77 and it does have an elevation issue. I noticed this while controlling at KRAP a few weeks back, and I pointed it out to @brennanhackard, an IFAET Supervisor, who fixed it. In the February Airport & Navigation update, the elevation should be correct.
Thanks!

Haha, BalloonChaser lured me into getting a violation here a few months ago for “aerobatics”. But yea, this is a rather unusual hole.
