Re: Tough Approach



This A319 just about bought the farm in Italy earlier this month. Plus or minus 50kts windshear, big hole in the radome, unable to climb despite radar power on the go-around. The crew hung in there.

So the question is why were they 'there' at all? There had to be SOME sort of cues of sig wx in the area.

In a briefing recently, the speaker said we need to practice saying this more often.


It will likely reduce the amount of paperwork needed AFTER an event.

Would have thought "hail" might be a clue to bad weather.
