Incident at REGINA INTL SK (CYQR) (Aerodrome - power failure, Aerodrome - other, ATM - NAVAIDS/radar)


2003-03-10: At 2045Z on March 7, SASK Power inadvertently knocked out the commercial power feeds to Regina airport. Most power was restored through on-site IPU's, but the Field Electrical Center (FEC) failed to start up on its own and had to be manually started. Tower and PAL frequencies were temporarily lost, as were the ILS, ATIS, RVR, Stony Rapids RCO and the Regina NDB. ACC lost contact with four high flying aircraft on the PALs for approximately one hour. Commercial power was restored 45 minutes later at 2124Z.
