At 16.17 hours, the driver of a towing combination with a Boeing 737, with call sign BDD, requested permission over the runway channel to cross runway 04-22 at G2. The tower assistant verified the position of BDD and asked the runway controller whether permission could be granted. The runway controller answered affirmatively and switched off the stop bar lights. The tower assistant then granted permission to BDD, upon which the vehicle crossed the
runway. Approximately one minute later, BDD reported that runway 04-22 was clear again. The stop bar lights were turned on again automatically. Half a minute later, another towing combination with an Airbus 330, with call sign AOA, called in on the radio. This combination also wished to cross runway 04-22 at G2. The driver asked permission to cross runway 22, after which the stop bar lights were turned off. The tower assistant gave a clearance and without stopping the driver of AOA drove onto runway 22. The driver of AOA stated that he had seen an aircraft in the approach phase to runway 22, but because the stop bar lights were switched off, he was under the impression that
the aircraft was not flying towards runway 22 but was on the approach to a different runway.
After permission had been granted to AOA to cross the runway, the tower assistant looked on the radar screen and saw G-JBIS straight in front of runway 22 on the screen. In order to confirm this, she looked outside and saw G-JBIS on final. The tower assistant immediately sent a transmission over the radio stating that AOA had to stop. At moment, the crew of G-JBIS initiated a go-around.
After the go-around AOA was granted permission to drive on and after making a visual circuit, G-JBIS landed on runway 22 without any further notable occurrences.
