All of New Zealand's international and domestic flights were temporarily grounded Tuesday afternoon after authorities reported that the nationwide radar system had failed.
Airways New Zealand, which provides navigational services, wrote on Twitter that it experienced a radar failure at about 2:48 p.m. (0248 GMT).
It said in a later statement that it had identified the issue, tested the system, and resumed full service about two hours after the flights stopped. The agency did not say what caused the problem.

I'm surprised the US system is still working at all, let alone only having a few issues now and then.
