Another ILS Outage At LAX

Fixed Much Sooner This Time

What, again? For the second time in a week, one of the instrument landing systems at LAX went on the fritz... reducing to about half the rate of landing operations at the airport.

As was the case last week, the problem is the localizer on runway 25-Right. A spokesman for the FAA says the ILS went down at about 10 am Pacific time Monday morning, and was back on the air within 45-minutes.

Arrivals were delayed up to 45-minutes and flights within an hours' radius were held on the ground for about a half-hour.

The situation was somewhat mitigated by the weather. Unlike the first time this happened, back on August 7, the weather Monday was clear, with good visibility... allowing pilots to make visual approaches to the runway.

And, it appears, the sole technician in Los Angeles capable of repairing the ILS was somewhat closer to the airport than was the case last week... when just getting to the troubled equipment took more than two hours.
