    Huh ? The wind has been out of the NE at no more than 17mph all day and it’s a little misty out there. How do they land at night when they can’t see anything ?
    Maybe the fact of the matter is the ILS is down .

    • Scott says:

      RWY 12 has no ILS, so can’t use it on that runway, and 17mph is over the tailwind landing limit for those aircraft, so they couldn’t have switched RWYs.

      It’s aviation.. sometimes weather just gets the best of everything.

  2. Question says:

    The flights were cancelled because Bermuda’s ILS system us not functioning.

  3. Micro says:

    NOTAM – A0098/23 Glideslope out of service. The Skyport spokesperson may want to elaborate on how that affects aircraft landing in poor visibility.

  4. Mic check says:

    Yes I agree that the visibility minimums they are referring to are VFR . Bermuda visibility minimums are never that bad to not be able to land unless the ILS was down.

    • Joe Bloggs says:

      I have been told this afternoon that ILS has been down since Friday.

  5. Scott says:

    ILS is only relevant for RWY 30. They were using RWY 12, so no ILS regardless. They could have used the non-precision approach to get down to 460ft but clearly the clouds were lower than that.

    They couldn’t have changed to RWY 30 with the wind speeds they had.
