Incident at Vicinity of Wainwright, AB (ATS operating irregularity)


1999-10-13: ALTRV Coronet East 247 Leg 3 for a flight of 4 F-15's was approved, blocking Flight Level 240 to 260 along a track coincident with J515 from Saskatoon to Edmonton. ALTRV Wainwright FAC CRSE 9901 was a stationary ALTRV in the vicinity of Wainwright, Alberta, surface to Flight Level 240. A preliminary investigation found that the approval for ALTRV Coronet East 247 Leg 3 did not ensure separation between the two ALTRV's as required by MANOPS. The sector controller detected the confliction well before the moving ALTRV neared the stationary one and the potential confliction was resolved. OPI - ANS and Airspace UPDATE ANS reported that a Fact-Finding Board will be convened.
