Shocking Pilot

I was just on final to London Gatwick, and was forced to go around (on very short final) when a 777-200LR came onto the runway and took off. I was sure to spam Unicom with “on final” so there was no way he couldn’t notice. When I went around, he proceeded to fly dangerously close. This is on expert, I’ll be providing a clip after I land

Spamming “on final” probably wouldn’t have helped the situation. As unfortunate as it is, there are still a lot of people on expert with no regards for rules.

Best thing is to be the mature one and go around (like you did).


Some pilots are real pains.

You did the professional thing.

If a pilot does continuously fly through a large airspace with busy traffic, purely to troll, and going through other aircraft repeatedly, it is a reportable offense. This was just plain annoying.

This has happened to me a few times. Just expert isn’t what it used to be. What I suggest is you find the person (and report it to a moderator) regardless if they’re on the community or not.

Public shaming is not how we treat these situations on the forum. If an event is severe enough then a moderator can step in. Thank you for going around.
