I was driving on I-294 south about 5:45 today when there was a UAL 747 coming in on approach for Rnw 28 and had to go around right before the interstate because of a AF 340 that was positioned for departure on the runway.

Just wondering if anyone else happened to see it or hear about it. I know this type of thing happens a lot, even to me in a Cessna, but man it did seem pretty close.  relieved

Go arounds happen all the time hardly newsworthy... I have been on two myself. Better to go around than to push a bad position...You would be surprised what does not make the news.

I am quite familiar. Ive been in a few as a passenger and pic. I know its not something news worthy, just wondering if any spotters saw it and could maybe give a few more details/pics.

Those engines sure do spit some smoke out!  bouncy   goodvibes

Oh, those UAL 747-400s always belch out plenty of smoke. It's a normal thing for them.

UPS MD11 freighters are also very smoky on go-arounds. Very spectacular to see a MD11F go-around at last minute to avoid BA's G-YMMM which was only half way down the runway at the time.

A few months later, the 777 was involved in the incident that ended its flying life.

Few years ago i worked at O'Hare as a cargo guy over on the south ramp. Anyway, I've seen a lot of crazy things from those freighters. Especially at 2-3 am when there is little to no flights coming or going.

Sounds like the AF bird took a little longer to get ready for takeoff than planned for.

When there is a go around at a major airport like this, how do they fit it back into the pattern? Aren't the airways pretty well spaced and full around ORD?

had one at LGA. Pilot said the winds kicked up and we were going to land long, and he felt it wasn't a good idea to end up in the river. Got a nice view of NYC as we went around again.

I couldn't believe how quickly it pitched up, and then how it banked over. That was frankly amazing. And the noise - it was thundering away. It was smoking away like a prototype Concorde!

If you look in the database, you'll see my photo of N287UP - that was the plane.

At a large airport it might be a 20-30 minute wait to find a hole in the sequence but you'll get back in. At a smaller airport like the one I work at it's really never a big deal and unless the weather is IFR they almost always choose to enter the tower pattern back to the field rather then get vectors out for another visual approach. Sometimes traffic prevents this but not very often.

Amazing! I'm surprised, though, that the abort procedure calls for such an early turn to the left, towards the other landing runway. What if the other aircraft had aborted, too? Can anyone shed some light on the abort procedure justification at ORD?


I've only been in one aborted landing, LX22 GVA-JFK March 10, 2007. We were about 5 miles out and had to climb out and make a big turn out to the sea because of slow traffic ahead of us. Nothing major, I don't think the gear was even down yet, but it felt weird to be descending and then all of a sudden pitch up.

I had to go-around, my first in CRJ200 during IOE, at PHX... capt kept telling me I was getting too close to US 737 ahead of us... when 737 touched down, took sweet ole time on runway, chick controller was screaming at them to exit runway NOW, any exit... anyways, pushed thrust levers forward and started climbing, it was ugly, my callouts, forgot TOGA button, lol... lesson learned, good practice.

 Wow!

This summer while gliding, we made a 73G, 732, and 2 CF-18s go around. The CF-18 pilots were really pissed as they said they only had 3 min fuel remaining when they landed.The 732 sure spat out a lot of smoke from its engines. It was really cool.


As long as the number of take-offs equals the number of landings...you're doing fine.

When an aircraft goes around the Local controller, working that flight, will coordinate with the other two Locals and a heading will be assigned. We try to issue a heading that will be along the "dump zone" but that is not always the case. Departures climb to 5000, where as go arounds climb to 4000. The Supervisor will call his counterpart at the TRACON with the assigned heading. The aircraft's heading will determine which departure freq. he/she will be assigned.

It doesn't take that long, ten minutes, tops.

I've been in 3 go-arounds, two of them happened one after another and then had to divert SXF-LTN divert to EMA on a 733. The Third Divert was LGW-ANU on a 744. Also had a near miss coming into SFO. Didn't know it was a near miss until after landing when the captain told us why he had to whack up the throttles and pull up so sharply on the final approach.

I've been on two go arounds - one on approach to Kiev, and and one on approach to Dulles. Both were weather related.

I've seen numerous go-arounds at DCA. Probably 2-3 per year during my 17 year commute up I-395 into DC.

My last go-around was at DEN on UA. Nice thing about Channel 9 is that I heard the call to go-around so I was not surprised when it happened and I took some nice close pics of DEN's central terminal as we motored on by.

They swung us out aways to line up for the far parallel runway, but we were on the ground within 10 minutes.

Don't forget, there is another runway banking starboard..not to mention, there are a lot of planes coming in from that approach just north of ORD (which is the flight path our plane actually took).

The MX plane landed a bit later than we did so I dont' think there would have been a problem..had the MX needed to abort also, we probably would have just flown straight.

Nice to see that you guys are below 10,000' and still have electronic equipment on. I bet you didn't leave your seatbelt fastened until you safely arrived at the gate and the fasten seatbelt sign has been turned off.

I was on a go around in a NW A330. Quite powerful! We were told our spacing was too close to other aircraft and to be safe we made a go-around. Everyone onboard seemed quite scared, I had to try and convince my uncle to relax!

That was a lot more fun than any of the (many) go arounds I've made in a PA28!

Have been on lots of go arounds. One was on DL's first 777 flight into ATL (from MCO back in 1999). Good weather, just spacing issue. I remember the vertical speed being incredible with no sensation of the nose pitch up... seemed like a powerful elevator. Very smooth and great hearing those big rollers roar. I think the pilots may have wanted a few more minutes in their magnificent new toy! I sure didn't mind the extra ride in the brand new 777.

Had a go around at ATL in an L-1011 over the threshold and the captain came on as we climbed away and said the plane ahead had not cleared the runway. He made a tight left turn and got us right back on a short final. Arrived at the gate on time. Felt like we were in a left turn the whole time. He greased a perfect landing. Never had a bad flight on the TriStar... I miss those!

Nastiest go-around was coming into Perth on a cold, windy night. 777 from Asia. Perth gets really bad cross winds and we were getting a lot of lateral movement (strong gusts pushing us sideways). At about 2,000 feet they knocked off the approach and we circeld Rottnest Island until the winds relaxed. PIlot came on and said they had elected to make a missed approach due to extreme wind conditions... to which everyone on the plane began the the common rant (myself included) as to why they built Perth International near the small mountains that only allow the runways to go at an angle often at odds with the very powerful winds that are an almost daily occurence there. Took off one night for Dubai and literally thought we were going to stall as we turned away from the winds on departure the sink was so bad.

Happens all the time. Last Thursday on an AA DFW-LGA flight when we were no more than 50-100 feet off the ground when the FO decided to go around. As the captain said, "The United jet took its sweet time taxiing across the runway on its way to takeoff." Pretty fun, especially since it was a bit windy on the approach.
