An Airbus A340 China Eastern - Go Around
Earlier this month, colleagues from CaPlaneSpotting surprised one Airbus A340 China Eastern Airlines in the procedure "Go Around". While preparing to land at Los Angeles Airport (LAX), a Hawaiian Airbus A330 aircraft was in the process of taking off. In such situations, it is good to avoid the climb!
The “Go Around” procedure it means that the aircraft ready to land must return to the flight position and take another preparatory tour for landing. There are several situations when the procedure begins: due to weather conditions, runway problems, the landing gear is not open at the normal position, too high speed in the landing process, etc. The initiation of the Go Around procedure may be required by an air traffic controller or may be started at the initiative of the pilot of the aircraft.
It is normal and there are procedures for such maneuvers. If you happen to live such an experience, don't panic!
