View Full Version : An ATC slip

1st Jun 2001, 13:07
A true story from Helsinki (EFHF) airport. North of rwy 04/22 there is a construction site of a new parallel runway. On the site, explosives are being used to blast off rocks etc. At the same time BA flight XXX has lined up rwy 22 and said "Tower, BA XXX ready for departure"

Unfortuntely at the same time dynamite was just about to go off and ATC could not clear for take-off, but went instead, "BA XXX, hold your position due to blow job on the runway"

And I thought it was more like a bang on the rwy!

I'm not a PPRuNe addict. (just need one more post)
