WotD IATA Airport Codes Theme – May 3 to May 13

The beautiful world of IATA airport codes has been the overarching theme of JoJo Stratton‘s WoTD posts from May 6 to May 13 2016.

Whats been distinctive about this batch is that examining the page source not only led to the usual ciphertexts but also to a series of hidden messages, hinting both at the method for solving the code and a potential upcoming Verum Inveniri story development.

Did you notice that each code has two distinct different regions?
There is the big part containing the code, then a single 6 letter part at the end.
That 6 letter part is the key for the hints and are all http://goo.gl/ links to images.
Each image has some lyrics in plain view and the previous hinting at the background story development.

Pairs of 3 letters with the exception of the last 6 characters.
Since it is only 6 characters, we could assume that is a Short-URL (append http://goo.gl/) which leads us to find a picture with what seem to be lyrics on them.
Looking up the words brings us to our hint.

This looks exactly like the previous code, except for the lone single characters W and applying the same techniques brings us to yet another images with lyrics written on it.
Looking up the song brings us to this code’s hint.
We’ll deal with those rogue W’s later!

This time we don’t have the IATA codes pre-paired into 3, but rather what seems like sporadic at first and interchanging upper and lower cases.
But take a closer look how the are paired 😉

You already know what to do with those last 6 characters, roger? 🙂

This time we don’t have IATA codes, but Airport names and numbers next to them.
Let us take a look at the given image hint.

This one seems a bit different than the others that we have had in this theme so far.
We can spot the some IATA codes in there, but deeper investigation will be needed to determine what needs to be done.

Here we have IATA codes followed by numbers each time, so each code seems to be directly linked to the following number.
Lets resolve the hint and take off from there.
