"Yes Sir. This model will never let you down. It's bullet proof, water proof, fire proof and can even withstand a nuclear bomb."

"Now, would you like the extended warranty with that?"

I wonder at what point they'll decide to just rip it out and start a fresh.

I do hope that they opted for the extended warranty
I believe our ILS system is quite new, so cant see them replacing it, the issue is its location on the airfield, so that the ILS glidepath on 33 is lined up correctly with the touchdown zone, it cant be re-posititoned, so once it was moved for the runway extension, the airport presumably didn't expect these problems.

Obviously solving this issue is creating a headache for the airport, they have tried specialist drainage soil, there were also rumours of them having to take the top of the noise bund off too, so I have no idea what they are trying next to fix the problem!

Should not be any water issues after this dry spell. Must be something else.

couple of latest Notams of note:-

Q) EGTT/QLAAS/IV/NBO/A/000/999/5227N00145W005
B) FROM: 19/01/02 20:00C) TO: 19/04/02 19:00
E) RWY 15 HIGH INTENCITY ALS. 750M APPROACH BAR PORT SIDE HAS FIVE
LIGHTS U/S (30 PERCENT). USABLE PATTERN AVAILABLE.
C0020/19

Q) EGTT/QICAS/I/NBO/A/000/999/5227N00145W005
B) FROM: 19/01/14 23:00C) TO: 19/01/15 06:00
E) ILS RWY 15/33 U/S FOR FLIGHT CALIBRATION
C0167/19

If the ILS flight calibration just a normal check/calibration, or is it connected to the 33 Glidepath (which has been out of service for a year), could this issue be resolved?
