Just a bit of trivia, for those who want to know the meaning of Bancasi Airport's IATA code.

Similar to Los Angeles decades ago, the weather station for what is now Bancasi Airport had a two-letter identifier. For the case of Butuan, this was BU. However, with the rapid expansion of the aviation industry (and with it the corresponding bloom in the number of airports), an additional letter was added for the airport to comply with the requirements. That's why BU became BXU. The "X" in BXU, similar to the "X" in LBX (Lubang Airport in Occidental Mindoro), XSO (Siocon Airport in Zamboanga del Norte) and XCN (a private airport in Coron, Palawan), does not stand for anything.

Just like in LA, I'm surprised to see that at least in SSC, BXU has become synonymous with Butuan. I wonder if that's the case in real life.
