Incident at Halifax Intl


1999-09-10: ACA608 B767 was cleared for an ILS Runway 24 via the Funday 3 FMS arrival., DUTIR, LEROS specified. The flight was then changed to the Tower. The Terminal controller later noticed that the flight did not turn "Base" leg but continued on a downwind. This created a potential confliction with ARN823. ACA608 was changed back to the Terminal controller who vectored the aircraft to final. No danger of collision existed. The minimum spacing between aircraft was aprx. 5 miles and 5,000 feet. When queried, ACA608 said he expected vectors to final even though he had been issued an approach with a "Closed" arrival. The controller explained the correct procedure to the pilot and changed him back to the tower. Nil TSB
