Unusual Go Around

Thu Aug 08, 2019 11:46 am

Maybe it is not unusual but ive not seen a go around like this very often, the plane came in at a steep angle, was never going to make the runway, levelled off, then maintained 100ft until near the end and it looks like at the end he climbed. The unusual part was ... they never came back, and they were not on flightradar24.

Any ideas what was going on?

Could it be one of those aircraft that check instrument approaches and such? I know in the US, the FAA has Lear 60’s that check airports in a similar fashion as that video, and, as I recall, they don’t show up on any of the flight tracking apps.

No, such aircraft tend to be smaller GA/Bizjet types, rather than A320 series. They also perform many different approaches during such checks.

Probably a training/familiarisation pass.
