Weather does not look that bad . Pilots failed to land in the touchdown zone .
Air France 358 did a similar whoopsie in Toronto in an Airbus 340 .Then sued the Airport.

Re: Overflying (R) Aerodromes where PPR is required?

Call the operator , sometimes they might maybe give you permission to land . Some people like to know who is landing is all . Been to a few places like that they enjoy their airport if you respect the property they might even let you return .
