Just driving past SYD on my way home from work and noticed a Virgin 737 coming into land when all of a sudden it apeared to abort landing. It headed left towards Botany Bay . Does any1 know what may have caused this aborted landing? That is to say if it was an aborted landing. It happened around 4:20 pm . Thanx in advance!!!

Sounds like a missed approach - could have been because of another aircraft on the runway.... it is not too unusual to see this.

This sort of thing happens more often than you'd think for all sorts of reasons. Nearly always, its nothing to worry about.

We had really strong winds in Sydney today with the strongest gusts report at the airport of 85kms/hr, so am guessing that may have been the reason today. At one point this afternoon a 747 reported windshear at 250ft, the runway lights on 25 failed mid-afternoon for a short time resulting in crosswind landings on the 34's. And listening on the scanner for most of the afternoon there was endless reports of severe turbulence especially below 5000. As mentioned above it could have been any number of reasons but without knowing for sure, im guessing it was the windy conditions.


Blessed are the Cheesemakers !
