Fire at FAA building at Atlantic City airport

Übermittelt
 
(CBS News) POMONA, N.J. - Firefighters are battling a two-alarm blaze at a Federal Aviation Administration technical building which prompted the temporary closure of Atlantic City International Airport. Officials tell CBS News that the fire began at about 12:10 p.m. in building 316, possibly on the roof where construction crews were working. The flames quickly spread to the adjoining headquarters building. (www.cbsnews.com) Mehr...

West coast flights don't seem to be delayed. SWA2797 (SAN-HOU) departed on time.

FlightAware is reporting the fire is causing a flight data tracker problem. I see many flights showing "estimated" in the flight data block. Also no GA data available. It reads
"News: Flight tracking data degraded in the US and Canada due to FAA data outage" near page top.

FlightAware's US and Canadian flight tracking was fully restored about half an hour ago.

Control told us that everything had to be input manually, delaying ops and slots, that's all I know from our flight.

Where is the redundancy? No fire or incident anywhere in America should disrupt ATC operations. All aspects of ATC should have an equally capable hot switch over backup if not the FAA should re-evaluate their infrastructure.

One assumes any delays were due to visibility and potential particle ingestion by AC engines rather than any lack of ATC capability.

The article clearly stated in a paragraph of its own that "The airport was temporarily closed for precautionary measures."
