Bombardier Learjet 45, Teterboro, N.J., June 25, 2008–The NTSB attributed the Learjet’s landing on a closed runway to the fact that the local ATC controller, working alone on the midnight shift, failed “to follow published procedures and directives.” The controller was aware that Runways 1 and 19 were closed for maintenance work but failed to place the information on ATIS and failed to tell the approach controller, who said he had an airplane inbound for 19. The pilot of the Learjet also noted that there were no notams about the closed runways.
