Go around at GLT

Postby Errol C » Fri Feb 19, 2016 4:32 pm

Does anyone with insider contacts have any info on why QF2338 BNE - GLT Thursday 18.2.16 aborted the first landing. My wife was on that flight and quite shaken up. She's not really au fait with aviation matters but her report to me was as follows.
Initial descent seemed to her to be uncharacteristically 'shaky ', steep and fast. The aircraft touched hard and "bounced " twice. The pilot increased power, took off and went around. She said the passengers appeared shaken and the second landing would also not have "won any medals ". She said the pilot gave a few brief words of explanation but she was unable to decipher them and understand what had happened.
I am intrigued and would appreciate any info that you guys might have. Cheers!

Sorry guys and my very sincere apologies to Qantaslink. My wife now informs that her office had put her on VA1711 (the AT7) where she had the dicey landing. Still interested if anyone has heard anything.
