Currently sitting in the Alaska Airlines Boardroom in T6, watching planes take off and land. Looked up in the sky to see an airplane directly overhead, heading west toward the ocean -- no way this plane just took off. A little research showed it was Air Pacific #810 from Nadi (http://flightaware.com/live/flight/FJI810). Anyone know why this plane didn't land after an 11 hour flight and went back around?

By looking on the flightaware link you posted, it looks like a go-around, but I could be wrong, as sptv say, plane just landed.

Listening to LAX Tower on liveatc, it was a missed approach. Crew reported they got "Resolution advisory that left them high" thus for a go-around.

"Resolution advisory", is when the onboard TCAS equipment senses traffic that's too close, and tells the pilots to climb or descend to get away. Obviously the Air Pacific plane had another come too close, and was told to climb. Once clear of the traffic they were too high for a normal landing, and went around to try again. It could have been a plane taking off from Hawthorne, since if they climb out too quickly the TCAS system senses a too-rapid closure rate and issues the RA.

One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.

Quoting HAL (Reply 4):

Interesting information.

How does traffic at SMO interfere with departures at LAX? The other day I was spotting at LAX and departures out of the north complex were delayed for a couple of minutes because of traffic at SMO.

I thought the flyover was referring to the VFR Corridor over LAX. However, the VFR corridor does have an effect on go arounds, which controllers ask to keep to 2,500 ft to avoid the VFR traffic in the 3,500 SB and 4,500 NB flight levels.


135 hrs PIC (mostly PA-28) - not current. Landings at MDW, PIA, JAN.
