Why did he have to quit the landing
Robert Allen (2 months ago)
Any reason why the pilot decided to go almost verticle?

Dang, what an angle
David Baker (10 months ago)
not rare happens everyday world wide its life deal with got the price one for two on landing
Stanislav Zolotarev (1 year ago)
a little bit too high, it seemed that he overruned at least half the runway. of course toga power
Fernousdu972 HD Aviation (1 year ago)
Not that much for sure, I'd say a quarter, but still enough to go around. Thanks for your comment!

Netherlands cannot play footbal, they cannot land very well and by the way, go buy A380 now!!
Bill Meacham (1 year ago)
I see the French plane is just like the French people, it only takes a bath once a month. And he probably had a sudden tail wind hence the go around

air france haha...i would fly air france now, i dont have family yet and i dont care about my life.. but with kids and wife and family ... absolutely no way i would fly with air would be very irresponsible from me...i would want to be alive for them...but foe now i ll fly kurdukistan airlines, kongo airways, bumbaka shaka.airlines, and colombia airlines on 737 who had last maintance in 2015. and whose crew doesn't even know what stall is..
Gage (1 year ago) the opening seconds his RH ailerons are deflected up for a long time. Hard to believe that the aircraft isn't rolling to the right. I can only guess that he is fighting a cross wind and the aileron deflection is being offset by....what?....rudder? Is this what it looks like when the yaw damper is doing it's job? Pilots, WHY isn't this 777 rolling with so much upward aileron deflection? The RH outboard aileron in particular has relatively a LOT of upward deflection for being in wings level flight.
Fernousdu972 HD Aviation (1 year ago)
You're right. But in the video the ailerons and flaperons are not in their neutral position. I've flown the 777 many times and these are not their neutral positions. You can also compare with other wing views on Youtube. Flaperons and ailerons are always deflected up on final, but not that much usually. If you look at the wing during the approach on another of my videos (same a/c, F-GZNF), you'll see that the control surfaces are out of their neutral position and that there's an offset.
Wendigo127 (1 year ago)
I don’t fly 777s, but it could just be part of all the engineering magic that goes into extending flaps. It returns to its regular neutral position once the flaps are raised. I’ve never flown a complex aircraft that didn’t have a flap interconnect for changing how the flight controls respond to stick inputs and the neutral position of the flight control surfaces once extended. Also, just because surface winds are light doesn’t mean there aren’t strong pattern winds, especially around large bodies of water. Winds can be 50 knots faster going totally different direction just 500 ft agl.
Fernousdu972 HD Aviation (1 year ago)
If you find anything let us know! But for sure, it was not normal at all. I took the 777 many times and I've never ever seen the flaperon in such a position. Actually, you've surely already noticed it, the 777's outer ailerons are always deflected up on final (although not that much normally). But not the flaperon. I'll do a little research as well, I'm very curious about it!
Gage (1 year ago)
Holy cow....thank you very much. That's very interesting. I have access to the maintenance manual, although I don't work on 777s very often. I'll read the D&O (Description and Operation) of the aileron system and find out if that could be a normal condition. I doubt it though. Was it a short flight? If it was a very short flight it's possible that their fuel balance might account for such a configuration. Thanks again for the info.
Fernousdu972 HD Aviation (1 year ago)
The ailerons have had this "offset" position for the entire flight actually. I don't know why, so if there's a pilot or engineer reading this, I would love an explanation as well. And there was no crosswind that day ;)

Steven Coffone (1 year ago)
Someone didn't finish their beverage, so the go around was to allow the beverage to be fully consumed. Yes, that is correct. I was the co-pilot on this flight. We received word that a passenger was drinking a Diet Coke and wanted to finish it, so we did a go around at our request to ATC and while the net cost was approx. an additional $15,000 US to the airline, we must let all passengers have the enjoyment of Coca Cola.

Not so rare for big airports, but for some places like Martinique (in the video), it does not happen every day (not even once a month)

Si proche du sol en effet c’est rare de voir un Go Around a moins d’un danger imminent, ou de windshear tu as demandé aux pilotes en débarquant quelle était la raison...??
Fernousdu972 HD Aviation (1 year ago)
Rien de tout cela! Piste libre et pas de windshear. Youtrein spottait mon avion à ce moment là et m'a confirmé qu'il n'y avait rien de particulier à signaler. L'arrondi a sans doute été un peu long ?
Moonstruck Exploring (1 year ago)
I've flown in this type of situation once on a 777 go around in Portland Oregon. It was foggy and the tower neglected to tell the pilot that there was another aircraft on the runway that we were landing on. At the last second, the pilot sees the other passenger jet and performs the go around. That was the only close call I had with two years of flying every week.
Fernousdu972 HD Aviation (1 year ago)
Fore sure that made the news. Could have been catastrophic and resulted in hundreds of deaths... Thankfully the pilots have been reactive enough
justasurfer (1 year ago)
Wow honey, that vacation just flew by!

From the looks of it he was landing long so a good idea to bin it and go around.

Wow that 777's got a lot of power... It jumped back up to altitude like it was no big deal.
wizbang68 (1 year ago)
Looked like a missed approach, he got some late updraft so just went around.
Na5iR11 (1 year ago)
Did they say why they went around?
Fernousdu972 HD Aviation (1 year ago)
They said there was an aircraft on the runway, which was not true at all. A friend of mine was spotting at the same time and told me the runway was totally free. They just did not want to tell the passengers they flared a little too much and missed the approach ;)
Kid Vicious (1 year ago)
They get two landings for the price of one lol.
Gin Weston (1 year ago)
Right when you’re feeling disappointed because your flight has ended et voila, you get another take off thrown in for free. Gotta love the French.

sevenhornets (1 year ago)
Nearly full right aileron on the way in. Heavy crosswind based on the control inputs...
Benjamin Robert (1 year ago)
@Fernousdu972 HD Aviation Just the fly-by-wire behavior to help the aircraft slow down when above targeted speed in situations when slowing down can be difficult. In this case flaperons and outter ailerons on both wings will deflect up. By the way that's probably the reason for the go-around, they were too fast and unable to get speed-stabilized. You can also notice this kind of strange flaperon behavior on take-off. Flaperons going up during the start of the take-off roll before going down to its natural position regarding the flaps configuration.
Fernousdu972 HD Aviation (1 year ago)
Actually no. The right aileron + flaperon have been in this bizarre position (up deflection) for nearly all the flight. Idk why. Logically it was the same on the left wing for obvious reasons, but I've always wondered why. Look at other Boeing 777 wingviews in final approach, you'll see. And trust me, the wind was not stronger than normal that day.

Looks like they way overshot the runway threshold and still floating 1/4 to 1/3 down the runway. Flight crew did the right thing, decided not to take any risks and go around.

Sir Christopher been on a Alaska airlines flight that was maybe 20 ft then go around was first time I ever been in go around on a pax flight. But it was eh oh well feeling.

almafuertegmailcom (1 year ago)
Fernousdu972 HD Aviation Indeed. In fact, I'd say anything below minimums is "late", but this is a particularly late go around. Just amazing.
Fernousdu972 HD Aviation (2 years ago)
When you're just 20 ft above the the runway and just a few seconds before touchdown, it's a late go around ;)
Bohdan Kovalchuk (2 years ago)
And what was the reason for going around?
J A (1 year ago)
Floating above the runway for too long ... the float is produced by all wings close to the ground and sometimes due to wind or angle of attack, it goes a bit too far down and over the runway and if there's not much runway left ... its a go around.

I forgot to mention it in the description. A friend of mine was spotting the plane and told me what seems to be the real reason. The pilot said it was due to an a/c on the runway...

Napoleon Blownapart (4 years ago)
its incredible how massively over-powered commercial jet planes are... as they should be in case of one engine failure
dufonrafal (1 year ago)
They have the power to take off at full load with an engine failure. Here it has both engine and is firly light since it's an arrival (not much fuel left in it). So yeah, it can climb!
Smart Vibes (1 year ago)
So it's amazing just how much surplus power these aircraft have if required. But they are certainly NOT overpowered. Overpowered might be used in a scenario where the engines tear the wings off when used a full thrust.

Malik Clarke (4 years ago)
@Kr3aMo1 He/She used the right ailerons for the entire approach. It seems as if they had some strong winds coming in from the right... and man that was a steep climb!!
Malik Clarke (4 years ago)
@ebksb123 Sounds legitimate :) It's a learning process
ebksb123 (4 years ago)
+Malik Clarke Nothing to do with the wind. Usually the flaperon moves down according to the flaps position, but in case the plane is on final approach ( flaps 25/30 ), the flaperon moves up when the actual speed is above the computed approach speed to decrease lift. This results in a more normal angle of attack. Otherwise, the pilots would have to push the nose down too much to achieve the required rate of descent. And you don't want to land with nose gear first ;) You can see the flaperon behaving normally again at 1:55 when the plane is going around and flaps are retracted to 20.
Malik Clarke (4 years ago)
@FERNOUSDU972 HD Aviation Videos Ohh Okay...  :)
Fernousdu972 HD Aviation (4 years ago)
@Malik Clarke You're totally right but on that a/c the ailerons have been a little up from neutral position all the flight long. I think they have a little problem on that one :-)
Malik Clarke (4 years ago)
@FERNOUSDU972 HD Aviation Videos I really don't think so.. Why? Those inboard ailerons (flaperons) goes down at the same time the flaps go down So whatever position the flaps are in, that would be the aileron's default position. And if you look at those same ailerons after climbout, you will see that they went down ( went into the neutral flap down) position. The OB aileron also confirms this as they were UP!  Disagree? :)
