British Airways A380 low go around

Recommended Posts

I am not 100% on this but either that was a purposeful approach or (most likely) they went around because they floated...

There are many possibilities what may have led to this go around, in the end only the pilots know and we can just guess.

Very True Emanuel, as I have learned with go-arounds :P

I have for example recently flown a Go Around (in real life of course) because I spotted an animal next to the runway which *might* have ran onto the runway when hearing the airplane approach.

Things like this you wouldn't see on videos, but they are very valid reasons for go arounds and often even spotted only at the very last second.

If I have to make a guess.... it was a manual landing and the pilot was slightly high and slightly fast when the flare started. There seems to be a rather long period where the aircraft stays at 15 feet (or so), as if the pilot expected to touchdown. Normally a go-around is a rather positive manoeuvre, full power and almost immediately a slight nose up attitude. Here it seems to go on and on.
