Last Update: January 16, 2024 / 20:39:34 GMT/Zulu time
On Jan 16th 2024 Spain's CIAIAC reported that tower had cleared a maintenance vehicle onto the runway just second earlier, when the vehicle was entering the runway from threshold 21R tower just cleared the ATR for takeoff. The CIAIAC released their final report in Spanish only ((Editorial note: to serve the purpose of global prevention of the repeat of causes leading to an occurrence an additional timely release of all occurrence reports in the only world spanning aviation language English would be necessary, a Spanish only or no release does not achieve this purpose as set by ICAO annex 13 and just forces many aviators to waste much more time and effort each in trying to understand the circumstances leading to the occurrence. Aviators operating internationally are required to read/speak English besides their local language, investigators need to be able to read/write/speak English to communicate with their counterparts all around the globe). The report concluded the probable causes of the incident were:
Lack of adherence with procedures by the controller, as the controller cleared PM-617 to enter the runway and take off although the runway was occupied causing a runway incursion on 03L.
Contributing factors were:
failure of the supervising controller to execute recommendations resulting from previous incidents, not paying special attention to runway checks.
