Closed Airports

So, after I watched the brand new @Swiss video, I decided to go on solo and try to do a normal landing at the now closed airport, Kai Tac (VHHX), but when I put in the ICAO, nothing came up. Then, I put in Kai Tac, but I received the same result. So my question is, does IF not include closed/retired airports?

It’s there. It’s VHXX. It’s also spelled Kai Tak. I flew in from Sydney on a Cathay 747 once, it was awesome. I recommend!

Thanks, Wikipedia has the ICAO under VHHX

Someone with a Wikipedia account should get in there and change that.

The actual ICAO Code for Kai Tak is VHHX Infinite Flight are the ones that need to change it. Also I find some Simulators to use VHXX.
