Missed Approach At DXB. Lufthansa 777

Wed Oct 18, 2006 6:29 pm

I live in Deira and am almost on the approach path. During my routine smoking session by my window and looking at aricraft line up for the final, the following is what I saw:

At approx 12:05 Tuesday morning, (17th Oct 2006, DXB time)A plane was on the final, about 5-6 Kms from the runway without its landing lights on. The only time when a single light did come is when the pilot lowered the landing gear and the nose wheel light lit up. I immideatly knew something was wrong. About 2-3 kms from the runway(still no landing lights), the pilot of the plane (Lufthansa 777) pulled back on the stick (a steep angle) and turned right. Everything else prior to that, like the altitude and the speed were fine.

Since it was late I did not wait up to see him retry the landing, but was wondering if anyone out there had any information on this. What went wrong there, was its a pilot error or was the runway not clear? Any other views?

P.S 1: Please excuse if I messed up the aviation terminology.
P.S 2: Those who are familier with Dubai, I live on Rigga rd.

Lufthansa does not operate B777s. Maybe you saw an A333.
Your story seems like a normal "go-around" procedure. How can you be so sure about the distances? In the air, especially when you are in the same line with the aircraft, distance can be bigger than expected  Wink

The buildings that they fly over gives me an approx distance and the time a plane takes to fly over each of the bldg was about the same as the rest of the jets take.

May be its a A 330. There is a flight scheduled around that time from Abu Dhabi International.

The purpose of the thread is to why and what happend? Just my curiosity since its the first time I saw it happen.

If it was an A330 it could also be EK as well. Then the procedure what you saw could be the part of an a/c test-fly or simply a go-around... I believe if there was anything serious, news would have reported it...

Last I checked, there was no prerequisites section on A.net saying "In order to post, you must correctly identify the following 15 airplanes, and must possess an ICAO ATPL."

The way I read those posts is "how dare you not know something about aviation?" This isn't like the thread going on right now about the guy who made the AC 767, where the guy was over dramatizing, this is somebody simply asking an unassuming question (he even apologizes for any mistakes in terminology!).

Also, I believe the limit for editing posts is 30 minutes, so what's the purpose of telling him to change the title 30:40 later? His post was not misleading, and was a whole lot more concise than most posts.

_____________________________

Back to the topic, it sounds like a typical go-around. Maybe the reason they didn't have all their lights on was because they had just come out of clouds?

Qslinger, just to let you know, this is a common enough occurrence that there wouldn't be any type of report written up, unless the consequent later landing ended in an incident.

Hey here's an idea...

Why don't one of you hotshot avaition geeks explain the differences between a A330 and a 777 so he might not make the same mistake again instead of bashing him about his honest mistake??

Help the guy out, welcome him to A-net and maybe he will be around to help someone later...Kinda a do a good thing and pass it on theory..

Hmmm?

With only one active runway at DXB, go around are common. Specially with the large number of traffic during the night and after mid night.

Hala! Actually, DXB is extremely busy around noon and late at night. I'm no professional, but I do use Dubai alot. Usually, airlines have two approaches to land. One, from the Arabian Gulf onwards over Diera until the airport (as you saw), and the other from Emirates Highway (south) and from Sharjah territory and the desert (usually at night).

Usually, when the airport is busy, airlines Q up on the southern area, and when its not that busy they do the other way.

I was on an A300 flight and just one minute from touch down (we could literally see people walking!) , the pilot adjusted the flaps and the plane went up again and banked to the right. We were at the Diera side, but then we turned around and Qed up towards the southern area. So, its very common. Don't worry!

I hope what I said is not confusing...

Then there are also those that are quick to point out that "this thread does not belong on this forum" yet then actively participate in the discussion.

Another variety include those being biased against our younger members. Unless that 18-year old proclaims to be a rocket scientist and has a sure fire formula to solve the problems of Airbus, let him have his say as long as it isn't arrogant. And that goes for everyone.

We all have our opinions, but on the other hand, I think that we appreaciate learning something from this group get-together.

I know that there are some sacred cows on A.Net, but why get your blood pressure trying to reason with them. They are already in their own world and they won't be coming down to meet with us Earthlings.

I had experienced a missed approach/go around at DXB with EK 773 ! We were about to land when the engines suddenly revved up as if we were taking off again..and indeed we climbed very fast.the captain got on the PA and explained to us what happened. That was really cool. We landed normally not too long after. Forgot what the reason was as told by the captain over the PA....I think more to do with traffic on the runway or something like that (not about the plane is what i wanted to say)

_______________________________________

As for the original question, I don't think this person was questioning the frequency of these events or pointing out anything disasterous. Go arounds, while relatively frequent, aren't "normal". They aren't dangerous per se, but its not what's supposed to happen on final. A landing is normal.

But what IS normal is for one of us aviation fans to see a go around and wonder what provoked it, and naturally we turn to this forum to see if anyone has information. If anyone knows about that particular incident, I'm sure the original poster would love to know. As would I, even if it just was simply "traffic on the runway".

This last statement is very true I seen and heard an XLA 743 go around here at MAN yesterday it was great watching it clean up and it got a few people stopping to have a look at what was making the noise as well and I did think straight away must be traffic because I could hear an aircraft taking off and not long after the XLA 743's engines spooling up to TO/GA thrust and it then banking away to the left of the 24's but it did make me wonder if it was something else.

Not to totally hijack this thread or anything - okay, yes, I'm hijacking it - but I've noticed a lot of hotheads in Civ Av who don't take jokes or cotton well to people who make mistakes about aviation. When I saw the title of the thread my immediate reaction was "Wow, when did LH pick up 777s?" But I certainly didn't open it just to say "DOOD WTF LAMER?!?1/ Go arounds happen every day, now go back under your rock, you troll!!11 PS: AIRBUS HATER!!!111!1"

Not everybody's going to know everything there is to know about airplanes on a.net. Some of you guys who get so caught up on tiny little details need to relax a little...

Or at least not be so mean about it, what's your point? The guy mistook a 77 for an A33, for crying out loud. Where's the crime here?  Silly

You're all excused. If the lights on the airplane were off and it was dark (morning 12.05 : does that mean five past midnight?), how did you recognize a. LH, b. a 777 ? You obviously got at least one of these wrong, and eurowhite at dark looks like another eurowhite (should be called worldwhite), and a big fat twin looks like another big fat twin as well...

Sure, tell me that I don't have to read something if I don't want to hear about it... but when someone finds a new site about his/her favorite hobby- they are more than eager to be a part of it.

I know Americans (none specifically...) can be daft, but I wouldn't be caught dead making such an assumption of one from another country the way you have. It is a sad day that I must look somewhere else, somewhere other then a.net- for reliable and FRIENDLY information about airliners.

Try one of the other 1000 threads if you want to add something relevant to the thread....I see you didn't do much but complain on this one.

99.9% of a.net threads are probably the most informative aviation related forum threads you'll find anywhere on the web.

And I, for one, wouldn't like to argue with LH...

Back to the topic, I suspect it was just one of those things. Maybe they forgot the landing lights, got to minimums and pulled out because their visual wasn't good enough? Maybe there was another aircraft on the runway, maybe a runway-sweeper (hey, it's happened in PER, why not DXB!). It's not even unusual for a pilot to decide that the approach "feels wrong" and pull out of it for a second run. Probably we'll never know, but certainly some of us would like to...

Good call Morvious!!

Another good call, Irobertson! What each airline chooses to have in its fleet is up to it and, as long as they can manage what they choose, then good luck to them. I never really agreed with Qantas' decision to go with 73H over 320, but the fact is that the 73H fleet works for QF because they can make it work - they may not be able to make a 320 fleet work (although Jetstar is a good indication that they could).

A good aircraft is an aircraft that delivers an effective result to its operator, so if, in this case, the A330 works well for LH, that makes them a good aircraft.

I also agree that this forum is becoming increasingly invaded by insensitive, know-it-alls who, among other things, can't stand the thought of Airbus succeeding at anything. If they were all American's it'd be understandable, patriotic even, but considering they come from all over the globe I just find it pathetic. Airbus is a wonderful manufacturer with some hiccups in a high profile project, but at least we can bet on the fact that they'll iron it all out.

Who said LF did not operate the Boeing 777? They fly both the 777-200ER and the 777-300ER. Here are two pics showing two of their 777's in service.

RE: Missed Approach At DXB. Lufthansa 777

Thu Oct 19, 2006 2:55 pm

Two problems...  Wink

a) Lufthansa's flight LH627, which operates AUH-DXB-FRA, landed at DXB at 00:35 on Tuesday morning (and took off for FRA at 01:58).
b) It was operated by an A340-300.

Could it have been a LH Cargo MD11? Don't know if they even fly to DXB - but at 12:05, you didn't see a LH plane arriving.


Just for those interested, here's the flight info of said LH flight...

According to the LCAG timetable I got, they do operate into DXB. However, neither flight arrives at 12:05. The friday LH8030 flight arrives in DXB at 23:55, while LH8031 TPE-FRA, which stops over in DXB, arrives at DXB at 06:50, 07:30 (both on Wednesdays) and 07:20 (on Fridays).

Hey people, I know I shouldn't tell you this because I'm under NDA but I can confirm:
LH is operating secretly 777s in Dubai! I heard this from a very reliable source!

That was also the reason for the go-around, the pilot noticed the A.netter watching him and made the correct decision...

I think you missed the bit about 12:05AM, as in 0005hr. Which means there's every chance that this (LH627) was the flight that started this thread...
