A tiny bit of googling shows that calcmaps.com lets you enter lat/long and specify a radius. Maybe a start? I’m sure there are better tools out there, just a few clicks away.

These are designed as highly advanced intellectual puzzles and assumed that sub 3% will solve.
I accepted the challenge and and had humble pie for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
A tiny bit of Googling won’t get you there, extrapolation is necessary.

Are you sure that's the question being asked?
Yes I’m positive, it’s level 8 of 10 in contest. ( Mensa)
No guidance whatsoever, just here’s the #’s find the airport.
Quite frustrating!

First few puzzles were ciphers so maybe these aren’t the obvious longitude/ latitudes? I’m tapping out for the night, I love / hate these puzzles.

So what's the answer, OP? If it's Incheon, let me know when and where I can pick up my reward.

Who needs to think in these days of computers and smart phones? Plug the numbers into your GPS, drive there and post some pics to let us know what you find.

How would standards apply?
There was some sauce in that answer, someone would need to explain why common core even exists..
