I had a simmilar one today with Long Marston (former EGBL)

Its in the airport db as EG67 but I've never seen it referenced as that 
anywhere alse.

Are these EGxx numeric IDs there just for when the current ICAO code is 

I believe the CAA have assigned new codes for some airfields with very limited
