|Quoting Kurt (Thread starter):|
The captain came on and informed us that "the wind shifted around to behind us so we'll go around and land into the wind from the other direction." Out the window was lots of blowing dust, rain and wind. We came in from the south and landed on 17R.
Was this the wind shifting, wind shear or a combination of both? I've had go-arounds but they were due to other aircraft on the runway, not weather.

Of course it was the rudder problem on the 737 but windshear was a factor, no?
