Sounds like you have as much information as needed... a sensor had to be replaced, which caused the delay.

Replacing a sensor takes time; you have to locate the part, do the maintenance and then the paperwork which usually takes the most time.

Just want to confirm I'm not crazy; as far as I know...when the LOC is OTS, the whole ILS is considered OTS. (Also no LOC, no ident signal...flag doesn't get pulled back)

For the flight crews out here; when the LOC is OTS, What does Airline SOP tell you to do?
