Incident at HALIFAX / STANFIELD INTL NS (CYHZ) (Wake turbulence/vortices, Other operational incident)

ACA104, an Embraer 190 was cleared for a visual approach Runway (RWY) 05 to follow CFG062, a Boeing 767. ACA104 was unable to slow in order to provide enough spacing for turbulence and requested a 360 degree turn. The tower controller was unable due to following traffic thus instructing ACA104 to turn to a heading of 320 degrees and contact terminal control. Terminal vectored ACA104 behind the following traffic. ACA104 was 8 miles final to RWY 05 when they requested the turn. No operational impact.

Incident at VANCOUVER INTL BC (CYVR)

While Condor Flugdienst flight CFG062 (aircraft registration GMBH), a Boeing 767-300 (B763) from Frankfurt (EDDF), was on final approach with the Vancouver arrival controller (CYVR), communication with the aircraft was lost. After repeated calls, during which the aircraft squawked 7600, an overshoot was commenced. As his intentions could not be determined, two departing aircraft were turned prior to noise abatement requirements. The aircraft did a standard missed approach and communications were re-established on departure. The pilot stated he had lost communications. There was no further impact on the operation.
Update from the TSB: The Condor Boeing 767-300 (CFG062) experienced a communication failure with the arrival controller while on final approach to Vancouver. The aircraft squawked 7600 and executed a missed approach. The pilot established communications later with the departure controller. As a result of the missed approach, ATC had to turn two departing aircraft early on the VNAP SID. There was no risk of collision or loss of separation.
