Incident at FORT MCMURRAY AB (CYMM) (Incursion - runway - vehicle, Communication error)
2001-01-22: UPDATE Aerodrome Safety reported that the Airport Operator (AO) met with the Shell owner/operator. The owner/operator was the driver of the truck instructed to hold short of Taxiway Alpha. The AO suggested we contact the company owner/operator to stress the importance of avoiding runway/taxiway incursions. The AO had investigated this incident right after the occurrence. The driver of Shell 300 was interviewed. He is experienced and familiar with all regulations and radio procedures and apparently confused clearance of ¿Hold short Alpha¿ with ¿Proceed Alpha¿. The Shell Operator was advised to brief all drivers as to the importance of ¿Hold Short¿ instructions and and the importance of fully understanding a clearance before proceeding. RECOMMENDATIONS: All concerned are well aware of runway/taxiway incursion and implications.No further action required.
