Runway lights back on at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank

November 30, 2012 |  6:50 am

Repair crews at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank on Friday restored runway lights on a runway after a power failure caused several incoming and outbound flights to be canceled.

The north-south runway "edge lights" were switched back on at about 5:30 a.m., according to an operations manager at the airport.

The cause of the Thursday night outage was not immediately known,  she said.

Officials predicted Thursday night that normal flight operations would resume at daybreak whether or not the outage had been repaired.

Although the north-south runway is mainly used for departures, incoming flights were also affected, officials said.  Airlines that use Bob Hope Airport include Southwest, United, Jet Blue and Alaska.
