AIRPORTS AND LANDING STRIPS

From I Flew From China by Royal Leonard, page 234:
"I carried a total of fourteen passengers and my three crew members all over China to make a complete survey of all the airfields, public, private, secret, and military, there being approximately two hundred of these. We also looked at possible sites for new airfields."

DO YOU KNOW THE 3-LETTER IDENTIFIERS OF ANY OF THESE AIRPORTS?
IF YOU DO, PLEASE LET THE CNAC WEB EDITOR, TOM MOORE, KNOW.
