Shuttlesworth Airport ILS system probably gave the
pilots the locator but not the glide slope. Some
smaller airports don't have a fully working ILS system, an ILS with no glide slope or no DME.

Maybe a repeat of San Francisco a month ago: flaps
down, gear down, auto-throttle engaged, but
no airspeed hold set and turned on in the
auto pilot. No power.

Curious.

Would UPS fly into an AP without a fully functioning ILS?

Doubt it.
