Ahhh! Just found it on Live ATC Archive, It was a Potential Flap Problem.

Select 4th Dec, then KLAX tower then 20:00Z it's at approx 24 mins, you might need the 20:30 too

Quoting Fly2HMO (Reply 9): No such thing, specially on an airliner. It was just a go-around, he was well above stall speed.
You mean their were not doing slow flight down the length of the runway? Yeah it was most likely a go-around or it could have been a low pass for ATC to perhaps visually check the flaps and see if they could see anything unusual. Although they mostly reserve that for the gear issues

Quoting B737-112 (Thread starter): There was an American 767-200 (Flight #1) that landed at LAX yesterday after doing what looked like a stall speed flyby over the 24 side and then landed around 15 minutes later on 25L.
I captured the event on video, at around the 6:45 mark in the video you see the flyby. Then at 8:38 you see the 767 clearing the runway with fire equipment in trail.
What time were you up at the hill? I was there between 3 and 4 PM or so, and saw a UA 752 go around, but nothing else special

Judging by the altitude, they were probably selecting flap 25 or 30. If there were a flap malfunction the crew probably would not want to raise flaps (if they could) on the go around. At those flap settings maximum airspeed is 190/170 knots respectively. Obviously they would not want to exceed those speeds. Looks like to me to be about a 180 knot go around. In my flap malfuntion events that is generally how it goes.
