I was heading back home this afternoon it was about 6p I knew MP645 AMS-MIA would arrive sometime soon so I decided to stop by the airport to see if I'd catch it to my luck 3 planes later I see it coming down towards runway 9 at MIA but I noticed the plane was coming in at a very high altitude and it was coming down pretty fast!! I for a moment thought something bad was going to happen then all of a sudden I hear this very loud sound as the captain applied full power retrated the wheels and started to climb making some very steep left turn. I stayed there to see it go around then like at around 6:25p I see it coming down this time everything was done perfectly and the flight was ended with a very smooth landing...what a way to end a 10 hour flight!! I think I may have overreacted to this but it just wasn't your typical Go-around.. It was pretty exciting to watch and I was very happy to see it land.

Go-arounds are great to watch. I remember the first one I can remember, an Iberoa A343 approaching 27L at ORD around '98. He was about 1/2 mile from touchdown, and to hear him applying max thrust.....That scared the )%)#(&)#$ out of me! Now, go-arounds are no biggy. I saw two at ORD today. An AA MD-80 and a UA 735. (I'm surprised the 'media" didn't write some stupid article about it, or have a "special report" on the TV about it tonite.  smile  )

Well, there is no 'typical Go-around'.
I'm sure it was standard procedure and nothing too out of the ordinary  Smile

Seen at least three Go-Arounds this week... 5X 741F, KZ 744F and a CX A333... But I'll not post a topic for each one  Smile

P.S. How did you know the Captain was in command?

Well, let's say that SOP would have been a right turn ... http://204.108.4.16/d-tpp/0603/00257IL9.PDF  Wink

Yes...MA for 9 sends you out to Virginia Key so as to avoid traffic on 26L/8R. I don't know if the worst pilots in the world fly into MIA or what. But I see more missed approaches executed on 27/9. Hell that still leaves 4k ft to play with even in a 74. Granted I am there a lot, but 30/12 is a lot trickier than anything else.

Well, nobody said it was a standard Missed Approach...just a go-around.

The tower will give whatever heading is necessary and then to call departure.

A visual go-around almost never follows a missed approach procedure...just the quickest/safest way to get back onto final.

OK, I guess I didn't mean 'standard' as being a Missed Approach.

A go-around is a standard maneuver for the crew (is what I meant), and can be unrelated to a MA.

I assume this was a visual approach, so most probably did not follow the MA procedure.

Isn't it usual that on the outbound leg the Captain is in command and on the inbound flight the First Officer?

well what is 'usual'. you have the usual 'its writen in the manual', the usual: 'usually this and that happens'. but usually the capten and first officer just talk about it.

One would hope the captain was "in command"...
Now, was he pilot flying?  Wink

More seriously, do I recall reading somewhere that the decision to discontinue an approach can be made by either pilot (on the understanding thet if either calls it both will proceed to go around), or is it the captain's call (i.e., whether he is flying or not?). Or is that a matter for each airline?

I am thinking of the AF runway overrun, and the (baseless) speculation in the media (and even here) that the pilots disagred about whether to do a touch and go or slow when they landed long.
