Hi,

Just wondering if anyone new the reason for an Air France (City Jet) Avro 100 / Bae 146 to go around at Edinburgh today about 3pm? It was on finals over the threshold and then did a steep and powerful pull out?

Finals?????? Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!!!  banghead 

Aircraft go-around for many reasons - too high on the approach, aircraft ahead didn't clear the runway fast enough, someone drives across your runway , tailwind causes you to float too far down the runway. It's a normal maneuver
that we train for all the time. Most of these cases don't even have to have a report filed. It's just go around and come back for a normal landing - really just normal ops. On my last trip HNL-SYD we saw a NW A330 go around while we were taxiing out for departure, and a Virgin Blue go around at SYD while we were taxiing back in to the gate. Honestly, it's all in a day's work. Unless the actual crew that flew the plane is on this board, finding out the reason will be next to impossible.

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

Very sorry, what is the correct term? I know aircraft go round for many reasons but I just wondered about this one. Appreciate your professional opinion HAL.

I didn't mean to do that, sorry. I just see that term 'Finals' way too often on this forum. The appropriate term is 'on final approach' - singular. 'Finals' may refer to a series of tests at the end of a school term, but it really doesn't apply to aviation. If you are talking about the location of the airplane just before landing, you could say 'the airplane was over the threshold', or 'on short approach', or even 'in the flare', or something similar. Any time the aircraft is lined up with the runway and in a steady descent for landing, it is considered to be on final approach, so by saying 'on final' you could mean almost anywhere in the last several miles of the approach. I hope this helps.

Agreed. It's not finals, and that's final. You're never on "finals approach."  duck
