Don't know there Maynard, the folks at YRL have witnessed more than a few missed approaches, due in part to the wonderful weather observers?Maynard wrote:Very doubtful of a missed approach. As Ki-ll mentioned, the added power after the failure was probably mistaken for a missed approach, given how close they were when the engine had issues.
Until I hear ANY "evidence" of an on board emergency, I'm chalking it up to a pooched missed approach.
Please, prove me wrong.
Wouldn't be the first time, failing to maintain a positive climb rate has had dire results.
Unfortunately, sometimes it is that simple.
The "mystery" transmission could have been as simple as a garbled missed call.
When this sort of thing happens, it's human nature for us to think something catastrophic to be the cause. Most often it is not. Most often probable being well over 95% of the time.
