Just wanted to share my first go around experience onboard C-GPTS Air Transat's A330-200 yesturday from YYZ-FLL. We were landing in perfect weather, and we were lining up for 9L at FLL, the pilot was coming in to high and to fast to line up properly, we missed 9L and were heading SE when he tried again to line up with the runway, but decided to do a go around. It was cool, got to see the entire FLL region at a low altitude. Our gear and flaps were down for the entire time. Just wondering if anyone saw my plane flying around yesturday morning over the FLL region? The 330 performed amazingly as usual, those Trents roar like a beast.

I bet that was cool!
I have been in a smaller plane with NZ leaving Rotorua going to AKL, were we tried 3 times to take off but there was something wrong with the engine, so it took them about 4 hours to fix then when they turned on the engine about 4 hours later there was a small flame that came out the back... ohwell we got to AKL in one piece, so it turned out to be all right!
Wow I've always wondered what it would be like to do a go around
to some people the sky is the limit, to aviation enthusiasts, its home!
