LAX power failure blamed on bird
by Jeremy at 1:31 am EDT, Apr 14, 2004

Officials blamed a bird on a power line for a 10-second-long power failure that disrupted air traffic at Los Angeles International Airport for up to 90 minutes for an estimated 80 to 100 LA-bound flights.

Talk about your David and Goliath story ...

Do you think the birds ever blame officials for their problems?

"Since 9/11 ... anything goes at the airport," said a waiting customer.

I knew about the Valley, but I had no idea it was right there in the airport.

Most functions came back quickly but some important equipment remained out, including critical switching equipment that allows instantaneous communication between Los Angeles tower controllers and the approach control facility in San Diego County.

Hopefully NIPC will be looking into this.
