Who cares about the airport designator??!! I commend the men and women, at SUX, who were the first responders of United Flight 232 and what a remarkable job they did! The Crew Members saved so many lives as well as the SUX "Emergency Response Team"! I salute you all!! No need to change your "Airport Designator"! Thank You for a job very well done!

Rapid City is KRAP
SUX is a good airport and nice town. There are plenty of other "unfortunate" identifiers. FAT =Fresno Air Terminal, CA for one.
