Does anyone know why US385 (B757-200) CLT-FLL 6/20 aborted landing just a few feet from the runway, then did an abrupt accension and fly-over?? It was scheduled to land on-time originally at 11:25; but finally landed at 12:11 in FLL. Just wondering why and what happened. ??? Thanks.

Well...we did have weather, could have been a spacing issue....
plane could have been too high, too fast, or another plane could have been on the runway. Anything is possible!

If the aircraft was that close to touchdown, it was most likely because of a potential conflict with another aircraft either on the runway or crossing the runway. Happens all the time so it's really nothing special, but fun to watch!

".. aborted landing ... "

I think that "went around" or "executed a missed approach" are technically more appropriate --

'Go arounds" are a lot mroe common than you think, and it could have happened for any reason.

I've always been told it's common, but have never experienced it myself after probably 300 flights in my lifetime.

I just had a friend today who had one at ORD about an hour ago. It was Iberia 6275 from MAD, and was basically on the runway and pulled back up. I would love to know the reason, but apparently the pilot spoke poor english, and the only thing my friend got was that there was a problem on the runway.

I've been involved in go-arounds twice, both at BWI on UA. The first one was pretty scary ... lots of weather, moderate turbulence. The pilot finally explained that the airport had declared a wind shear warning and he chose to abort on a two-mile final. We ended up at PHL for four hours.

The second time was due to the preceding aircraft lingering a little too long on the runway, and we circled once and landed about five minutes later.

Just found out what the deal was with the Iberia flight yesterday. The tail of another flight was too close to the edge of where the Iberia was trying to land, and the pilot thought it was a little too close for comfort. A wingtip to tail strike would be bad.
