Incident at FORT SMITH NT (CYSM) (ATM - inaccurate aeronautical information)


2005-02-11: NWA 17, a B747 over Nunavut, was flight planned as: ALSAB NCA23 HARUN NCA28 FYU OME. Edmonton ATOS read the flight plan on the display as: ALSAB NCA23 HARUN NCA23 FYU OME/and deleted 'HARUN NCA28' from the NFDPS flight plan, believing that portion to be a redundant statement. The flight data error was caught by the Controller during a position report prior to the data error becoming a problem.
