Dreamliner Go-Around at Honolulu!

Hey IFC! Yesterday I flew to the Aloha State since it was featured on the IFATC schedule.
While on final I had to go around since ATC left and a plane was still lined up on 8L while another plane landed on one of the 4s.
So I went around which wasn’t too bad since it surprisingly wasn’t very busy and also because the 50th state has spectacular views!

Awesome shots! I recall a dreamliner going around after I’d lined up on the runway… that might’ve been me, sorry about that!

Wow! Those are some beautiful pictures! Hawaii is such a beautiful place in IF and I should fly there more often.

Nice to see someone get some beautiful pictures out of a situation like that, I know others probably wouldn’t think the same way. Great job!

Nice shots!

BTW, I hate that IFATC specialist who made you go around… He’s such a terrible person. Also, sorry about the G/A, I think that was me controlling.

I find the 787 so much more difficult to land than the 777 variant, had to go around twice at VHHH even though the wind was fine and even on my second attempt I still managed to land far off centre, just my thoughts…
