Incident at Villeneuve, AB (ATM - operations)
1997-12-09: Villeneuve airport experienced a total power failure that was not alleviated by a back-up diesel unit for unknown reasons. The airport had no runway lights, beacon etc., but there was a back-up radio capability on 120.0. The weather at the time was below VFR, so no traffic was affected. OPI - ANS and Airspace UPDATE When the power failure occurred, the back-up diesel power unit came on line for about 10 minutes. Then, the injector fuel pump failed in the back-up unit, filling the crankcase with diesel fuel. That unit subsequently failed. Commercial power was later restored, and the back-up unit was repaired and returned to service.
