Cool Go-around

Thu Sep 01, 2011 2:51 am

Flying into Sarasota the other day and of course bad weather popped up. Florida during the summer always offers some excitement. Well I had my handy dandy Flip cam and decided to take a video of the landing. Needless to say it wasn't a normal landing! We had a windshift/windshear on short final and then had to ascend into the thunderstorm that caused it. Amazing job by the crew btw. They kept us informed the entire time.


Fly safe,

Looked a little rough out there! I've only flown to SRQ once but fortunately it was ideal flying weather.

A couple months ago I was flying YYZ-YUL with WS when the 736 I was on was hit with a horrendous windshear on short final. The crew decided against a go-around and we landed safely without further incident. I'm assuming we were below minimum altitude for an aborted landing as indicated by the carrier's SOP. Definitely a "life flashing before my eyes" moment. There were screams and crying children throughout the cabin. I certainly wish I had recorded the event!

Glad to see you arrived safely,

Flying refined.
