A power outage at a radar facility Tuesday evening cut communications and brought incoming and outgoing flights in Southern California to a standstill, affecting Los Angeles International Airport, Bob Hope Airport in Burbank and Ontario International Airport. The cause for the outage at the Los Angeles Air Route Traffic Control Center was not immediately known.
The outage at the Los Angeles Air Route Traffic Control Center was reported shortly after 5:30 p.m., and power was restored about 90 minutes later, said Allen Kenitzer, a regional spokesman for FAA.
I can only imagine what a nightmare it is right now at LAX. It’s got to be U-G-L-Y.
