Incident at CALGARY INTL AB (CYYC) (Incursion - runway - vehicle, Communication error)
1997-07-09: Vehicle 65 and a second vehicle were instructed to hold short of Runway 34 on Taxiway Uniform at Calgary, and the driver acknowledged with a readback. The vehicles were then observed driving onto Runway 34 with air traffic on a two mile final. At about the same time, the Ground Controller issued an instruction to an a/c to cross Runway 28 to Runway 34, and it appears that the vehicle driver mistook this instruction for him. In a discussion with the Tower supervisor, the driver realized the error and apologized. There was no danger of collision in this incident.
