Runway Light

N519AT

Ahh! This is how I change this!
I was listening to some Phoenix ATC last night, and they said that one of the PHX runways was closed due to a 6 inch deep hole, by 30 inches wide caused by a runway light explosion. Are these lights really that powerfull enough to blow up some asphalt?

Well, I work in airport operations, and I have never heard anything like that. The lights burn out faster then you would thing(or maybe it just seems like it because there are so many). I will ask around and see if anyone at work has seen exploading lights. The only other thing I can think of is it could be something electrical other then a light.
