Whoa Babes! The Crash That Almost Was, Emirates 777 Does A Go-Around

Apparently it’s called a Go-Around when you almost land a massive passenger jet sideways but then abort by pulling up and going full-on vertical back into the sky.  It should be called a shit-your-pants.  Wouldn’t you just love to be watching the grass and fields that run along side the runway getting bigger as your flight approaches earth, only to suddenly jerk sideways and see the asphalt coming right at you?  No thanks, babes.  At least the pilot waits until the last second before he/she decides to pull-up and send the plane screaming into the sky at a 90 degree angle.  Ugh.  I’m sure the vomit bags were in full effect for this landing.  Worst part is, they tried it again with the same result before finally diverting to another airport.  High winds are no bueno when flying.

This Boeing 777 was operated by Emirates and this almost crash-landing was at England’s Birmingham Airport.   Kudos to the crew for the pull up.
