Landing system at the Lubbock Airport down again

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Instrument Landing System (ILS) equipment is down again at the Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport and NewsChannel 11 viewers are demanding answers.

FAA Officials say the ILS was shut down again late Tuesday evening after planes coming in started to see the distorted data again. They say they're doing everything they can to get it up and running as soon as possible.

FAA Officials believed they had the week long problem repaired Tuesday after the check flights that morning showed no interfering signals.

On Wednesday morning, the FAA say they have brought in some of their best people to work on the problem. They're checking for other sources of interference and re-evaluating everything once again.

Flights on Tuesday were able to land without the ILS because of good visibility, but with upcoming bad weather in the Lubbock area, the ILS being down could cause more problems for travelers.

FAA and Airport Officials, along with Congressman Randy Neugebauer and City Officials will hold a public statement Wednesday at 2:00 p.m.

If you have a flight this week, it's recommended you call ahead to check on the status of your flight. (Click here) for the airline numbers.

NewsChannel 11 will continue to monitor the progress of the equipment repair and will have the latest on the news at 5, 6, and 10 and online at kcbd.com.
