Safety Recommendation A-03-045 and -46

************************************************** **********

The National Transportation Safety Board recommends that the
Federal Aviation Administration:

Modify the air traffic control (ATC) procedures used at Ted
Stevens Anchorage International Airport when departing
aircraft are authorized to use the full length of runway 32
and arrivals are in progress to runway 6L (and the ATC
procedures at any other airport where aircraft are permitted
to hold in runway intersections) by amending FAA Order
7110.65, "Air Traffic Control," to explicitly prohibit
holding aircraft in runway intersections at night or during
low visibility when arrivals are in progress to any runway
making up the intersection. (A-03-45)

Assist Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport
management in evaluating the airport's runway and taxiway
layout to identify and, if necessary, construct holding
areas for runway 32 departures that are clear of runways 6L
and 6R. (A-03-46)
