Today I went to LGW
, surprisingly to me, I saw my first go arounds... Well, actually, three of them. Three aircraft in the space of three hours at Gatwick went around, the first being a Ryanair 737-200, the second I didn't see, but I could tell by the noise it was an A32X. The third one was a TAP Air Portugal A319.
Anyway, the A32X and 319 both took the same go-around path, that being a right turn away from the airport itself heading south. The Ryanair 732 on the other hand, just ascended and flew straight over the runway with an awaiting 777 still on the runway, the ryanair continued straight over the runway, then turned right once it had left the other side of the airport. All of the go-arounds were caused by aircraft waiting on the end of the runway for departure.
My question is, why didn't the Airbus's take the same route as the 737, or why didn't the 737 take the route of the Airbus's?
Just wondering, and decided to start a topic lol, sorry it's a bit long
Thanks for your help in advance.
