2005-06-22: UPDATE Aerodrome Safety reported that in anticipation of the arrival of CAV 7699 a CALM Air Hawker Siddeley 748,the Cars operator at Igloolik went outside the terminal to visually inspect the runway and apron area when he saw an unauthorized vehicle without a rotating beacon on runway15/33 T. The operator ran back inside and advised the crew of CAV 7699 of the situation. The CARS attendant then turned on the runway and A-Papi lights to their highest intensity hoping that the vehicle operator would be alerted and get off the runway.
