A 22 year old part-time employee of ANA' s cleaning crew at HND while on a 2 hour break decided to walk out to the far side of 34R do some excersizing and then go back to work.

Quote:
Tokyo's Haneda airport suspended flights for about two hours Saturday morning after an infrared sensor system detected a person crossing a runway without permission, airport officials said.

It turned out to be an inexperienced worker.

The incident caused 70 departing and arriving flights to be delayed by as long as two hours, the officials said.



Quote:
The Haneda airport office of the Land, Infrastructure and Transport Ministry closed the runway for about two hours pending locating the man, who was a 22-year-old part-time worker at Kyowakigyo, a company that cleans airplanes under contract with All Nippon Airways Co.

"I just wanted to exercise next to the sea. I wasn't used to working at airports," the man was quoted as saying by airport officials.

Wayward worker shuts down Haneda

I don't even know what to think about this event. HND is a great place right next to the sea but...crossing a runway and three taxiways to do a little work-out...lack 'o' brains.

Surly that person deserves to be arrested for endangering aircraft. What on earth was this person thinking?

Huh, it's the other way around. An airplane weighs a whole lot more than a person!  Wink

Here is the kicker...he did it at 4:00am!

Does HND even have flights at 4:00am?

Simple answer no. But the first flights start at around 0600 and probably the authorities took the time to do a thorough inspection. Also, it is light out at 0400 around Tokyo.

The fool could have easily have gone to any one of the man-made islands in Tokyo Bay to do his early morning exercise.

That was a great start of the day for both JL and NH then. Their delays on the 1st flights that day went over to the rest of the flights later on... They simply cannot shorten the delays with already minimum turnaround times of their widebodies at HND  Smile
