Great vid...however ATC were pretty keen to find out the reason for the go around...Would this type of questioning by ATC be normal or were they perhaps a bit peeved about the go around messing up their presumably busy patterns??? It did seem a bit late to be calling a go around due to a gear warning...???

Quoting Jerry911 (Reply 9): "Absolutely amazing"?? You guys need to get out more.
Quoting EMBQA (Reply 5): I guess working at an airport and seeing go arounds sometimes weekly I don't get the excitment. In fact I don't even take the time to look anymore......
Why rain on this parade?
Last I checked, this is a site for enthusiasts that are passionate about aviation. This is a great post of a relatively high quality and lengthy video. It nicely documents the approach and the communications regarding this relatively uncommon situation. I certainly find it interesting, as do 1662 other readers (at the time of this posting)
Thanks, Fiaz, for the enjoyable post.
We're your kind of airline. Uh, I mean, We *were* your kind of airline.

It's not that they are peeved, it's just that they like to know what the cause is in case it is something that will affect following aircraft, ie windshear, strong gusts etc. A few years back on a blustery day i watched from my apartment window as a BA319 came in to land. About 3 miles from touchdown the aircraft performed a go round with the male voice saying 'shuttle XXX going around'. ATC asked for the reason over the various frequencies with the NF pilot saying 'we'll tell you later'. Back on approach 10 mins later it was a female voice handling the communications.....all she said was 'we were a bit out of shape on approach'. Probably just a rookie pilot that got caught out by the gusty winds that day, so the more experienced captain took over. But to ATC it might have been something more serious that could affect following flights.

Sometimes rookie or very experienced pilots are complete out of the shape on approach and they report ATC many other reasons to go around. Just to not be with a impression of a bad pilot before their colleagues. It's weird but it happens a lot.
In this nice video the NF reported "problems with the landing gear lights". Isn't a little weird to check and see this at the final approach just seconds before touch down ?

for that video
i see what ur saying, but when u look closely to the PIA video...i just question why he would plant the plane down so late....see if ur having landing gear troubles....woulnt u want to plant it down so it gives u significant amounts of spaces to stop or recover.......and plus he could of brought it down smoothly a few hundreds of metres back aswell
well..im sure u guys have better judgment....what do u guys thinks??

If I were to execute a going around, and the ATC asked. I was hot and high, but too embarrased to reveal the actual reason, could I just say like what the pilot said landing gear light? Are they gonna check it?
One day there will be 100% polymer plane
: This was discussed in a previous thread: RE: Cool Video Of A 747 On A Go-around -ATC Included (by Positiverate Jun 12 2006 in Civil Aviation)#ID282133
: Very good quality video, great camera work and also nice with the ATC feed dubbed in too.
: Actually, rechecking that the landing gears are green, indicating down and locked is part of the final landing items checklist.
: That's what i'm thinking. That was about as average a landing as they come.
: Well, if there's windshear or a microburst about, ATC wants to know about it ASAP so that they can issue advisories to other aircraft. Probably caugh
: There's about a million reasons why ATC would want to know why an airplane went around, ranging from the one mentioend above to FOD or an obstruction
: PK716 is JFK-MAN Now they use 747 for MAN-IAH-MAN, PK719/720. Seems to have changed over from 772 on 9th June. AP-BAT has done the last 2 flights.
