    Interesting

    Fllight VA191 (Virgin) PER - HKT Just came into land at 1503 Thai Time at Phuket, on approach, then above the tarmac headed back up again.... went back up to 3000ft and is doing a big circle... Wonder what the drama was....

    Had a nose wheel first landing many years ago in Wellington, atrocious weather and should have been aborted/diverted but fortunately the main gear came down milliseconds after and no damage... a few brown trou up front, perhaps!

    In modern jets the 'TOGA button' is used for poor/dangerous landing approaches and initiates a TakeOffGoAround sequence in engine power and flight controls. This may be initiated by pilot or commanded be ATC in the event of say, an errant aircraft straying onto the strip.
    Cheers, Rob.
    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!
