14 Dec 2015
On 21 January 2010, a Boeing 747-400F was in collision with an unoccupied van whilst about to touch down in thick fog following a Cat 3b ILS approach. It was subsequently established that a maintenance crew and their vehicle had earlier been cleared to enter the active runway but their presence had then been overlooked. Comprehensive safety recommendations to rectify deficiencies in both ATC procedures and prevailing ATC practices were made by the Investigation.
