FAA changing Lubbock's Instrument Landing System Frequency

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Friday's storms didn't help crews working to change the frequency of Lubbock's Instrument Landing System (ILS).  The Federal Aviation Administration decided to change the frequency after problems earlier this year.

Aviation Director James Loomis tells us they started the process earlier in the week. To make the change, crews had to turn off the instrument landing system for the main runway. It didn't affect day-to-day operations until the storms rolled in Friday.  That's when airlines delayed and canceled a few flights into the city.

Loomis tells us the switch will take about two weeks to complete.
