Go around at Lukla Airport

I guess most of you know Lukla Airport and its dangers, no further explanations required.
But what this Tara Air pilot did earlier this year on April 28th is simply breathtaking:
For the first time in history of Lukla Airport, a pilot decided to abort the approach and go around and he even was successfull.
The video below shows the approach and go-around, fortunately somebody captured this historical moment.

Absolutely rad, easily the most dangerous and risky yet successfull maneuver ever flown in a commercial aircraft.
I can only imagine what this must have felt like as a passenger.

Hats off!


That would definitely be a scary sight to see if I lived there. Thanks for sharing this. :)
