"Fair Use" for educational purposes. You're not trying to make a buck off of PPRuNe.

I guess they haven't been reading this thread.....


C-FNOH, a Boeing 787-9 operated by Air Canada was conducting flight AC2287 from Vancouver
International Airport (CYVR), BC to Hong Kong International (VHHH), Honk Kong. Approaching
VHHH, the flight crew were cleared to waypoint LOTUS for an ILS approach Runway 25L. When
the aircraft arrived over LOTUS, the flight crew contacted AirTraffic Controller (ATC) and reported
being established on the ILS. ATC advised the flight crew to change to the tower frequency. Just
after, ATC observed the aircraft overshooting the localizer of Runway 25L and descending to 3900
feet above sea level (ASL), which is below the minimum sector altitude of 4300 feet ASL. ATC
provided a terrain warning to the flight crew and the flight crew corrected the flight path to reintercept
the ILS Runway 25L. The aircraft landed at VHHH without further incident.
The flight crew reported receiving a false capture of the ILS Runway 25L and being visual with
terrain and the airport during the event. The operator is conducting an internal assessment in
accordance with their safety management system (SMS).
