Jim, Hi.

I was, quite wrongly, going by this list [1], which only has BRS and LHR
etc. I didn't know about other listings. Thanks very much, I'll change
to Brize Norton as that's just down the road (don't I know it).

It does beg another question though, sorry if this is a little newbie
but how exactly is this vocabulary controlled?

See if I (now) have:

<wn:Airport air:icao="EGVN" air:iata="BZZ"/>

How does anybody know if these codes are correct? Is there an RDF
controlled list anywhere which can be checked against? Or is this just
left to chance?

Thanks for your quick reply Jim, I have found the correct codes and
amended my file.

Speak again soon I'm sure.
