Incident at FREDERICTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Summary

2005-03-15: The Comair Inc. CRJ2 (COM102), IFR KBOS to CYFC, was approaching the Fredericton Airport from the south and was cleared for a visual approach. The aircraft was given the airport advisory when handed over from Moncton Centre and the pilot advised they would land VOR Runway 27. FSS asked the pilots whether they had NOTAM for VOR unserviceable to which they replied that they did not and they indicated they would now land on Runway 33. FSS asked whether they were familiar with CYR724, and they indicated yes. FSS received a call from the range control officer at 0318Z (COM102 on short final) to advise that an aircraft had flown over his building in restricted airspace and that there was no firing going on tonight. Aircraft was not observable on radar by FSS due to low altitude. The pilots of COM102 were advised of above upon landing. Follow-up investigation next morning revealed that the aircraft had been sighted and reported to the range control officer by a commissionaire working at the range control building. Nil TSB
