Well, this is less logico-mathematical than cultural.
 
hint:
In the meantime, I have seen some of these codes on a flight simulator.

If they're airport codes, obviously the missing items would be suitcases Of course that's based on nothing more than that they're 3 letter codes.

It is not airport codes.  Even though it could be they all are some obscure airport somewhere.
 
I saw a couple of these printed on a fake airplane control panel that served as a front-end to a flight simulator.
 
That is not a coincidence.  However, it has nothing to do with an airplane.  Not directly anyway.  But the airplane is a hint anyway.
 
Do I sound like Iceman?
 
Anyway, the reference I think of is cinematographic.

Worse, I thought you were Icey, had to double check to see it's your name who posted this.

Meaning ? The answer is referenced to a certain movie ? Or did I interpret it wrongly ?

The first thing that comes to mind is HAL but I am pretty sure that won't be it.

Correct!  Shocked
 
If you have seen the movie, there are all these screens showing 3-letter codes followed by computer animations, you can guess Navigation, Control, Vehicle, ? Hibernation, etc.

Hmmm... as to what's missing... I can't seem to find a picture of the console anywhere >.< but probably the space equivalent of an airspeed indicator.

You can only believe i what you can prove, and since you have nothing proven to cmpare to, you can believe in nothing.

I have ~50 posts to hack a "R" into a "D". Which one?
