Had a fun experience with a go-around on a flight today. Kind of unsettling when the wheels touch down the the pilot hits the gas instead of the brake.

Had that in Costa Rica but the tail end scraped.

That’s too much.

Google says that 1-3 per 1000 flights have a go around, which is higher than I imagined. I probably fly about 50 segments per year, so I suppose I was close to due for the experience.

DUDE! This happened to me at LaGuardia like 4-5 years ago. It was pretty horrifying.

As if flying into lga doesn’t suck bad enough already in the best of circumstances!
