Incident at WINNIPEG / JAMES ARMSTRONG RICHARDSON INTL MB (CYWG) (Aerodrome - visual aids)

The aircraft was instructed to conduct a missed approach due to a failure of field lighting. The backup generator was on for planned electrical work, but did not properly switch over when power was cut. Commercial power was restored and the aircraft landed safely at 0727z.
