Incident at RANKIN INLET NU (CYRT) (Incursion - runway - vehicle)


2005-04-27: Vehicle ST 24 was on the runway at Rankin Inlet while a HS 748 wished to depart. Efforts to raise the driver via radio were fruitless. A second vehicle was dispatched to communicate the instruction to vacate. The aircraft was delayed 5 minutes.
2005-05-03: UPDATE Aerodrome Safety reported that airport personnel at Rankin were repairing runway electrical transformers at the time of occurrence. The work crews had a speaker connected to the vehicle radio which was on the mandatory Aerodrome frequency. This was done so that the crews would be able to work and still maintain communication with FSS. Wiring between the speaker and the radio was found faulty which caused the communication breakdown. The unit has been repaired and is back in service. Besides the delay to the CALM Air HS 748 flight this event did not cause any other air or ground traffic interruptions.
