A brief blackout disrupted about 100 flights at Los Angeles
International Airport Monday, after a power line apparently failed
for about 10 seconds. But the loss of power was felt for more than
"The cause is blamed on equipment failure" in a 34.5 kilovolt
supply line, according to LA Water and Power spokeswoman Carol
The power interruption knocked out all phones, radios and radars
within the air traffic control operation at LAX. Several flights
were left in holds.
Even after the lights went back on, the remaining equipment
outages forced cancellation of all instrument approaches.
Fortunately, the weather was good enough for visual approaches.
