Incident at FORT VERMILION AB (CEZ4) (Aerodrome - visual aids)
2003-04-07: The crew of LRA 911, a Beech King Air medevac flight, advised High Level FSS that while on final for landing at Fort Vermilion, the runway lights shut off and they were unable to re-activate them. LRA 911 diverted to High Level and landed without further incident. The cause of the runway light failure is unknown.
2003-04-09: UPDATE Aerodrome Safety reported that a NOTAM was issued by the airport operator at Fort Vermillion once he was notified by the crew that the Arcal lighting type 'K' was unserviceable. The NOTAM remains in effect since the local authority has been unable to restore the runway lights. Warm weather is causing excessive melting and unusual amounts of water is believed to be the cause of electrical shorting in the lighting system.
