Live ATC Mess Up AA 757

Sat Mar 17, 2012 8:44 pm

Hey all I've been trying to find a video I've seen once before of an AA 757 I think somewhere in South America. He has to go around twice and refly the approach due to ATC screwing up and giving him false winds. Does anyone know what video I'm talking about? If so can you post the link? I've been trying to find it forever. I know it exists!

I think there was a link to that a few weeks ago on here. Anyone? I remember the video.

Was the first go around due to wrong wind information? It seemed like the first wind information was correct, but the AA pilot was just too high.

What's the alarm you hear in the backgound at 1:39? I've jumpseated in a 767 but can't remember for sure. Is it the overspeed warning (flap overspeed, maybe)? Takeoff config warning?
B-52s don't take off. They scare the ground away.

Check out the turbulence generated by the wings as the plane is ready to touchdown... it's so hot that we can actually see the turbulence! Amazing!!

One of my favorites! Having flown several times into TGU, I can really appreciate how hard that approach is.
