Air France 346 had a brake problem and went off the runway, there were no injuries.  This happened yesterday (the 26th)

Here's the audio from it.  Sorry for all of you who don't understand french...

Pull up = Canadian for "Go Around"?

I was thinking the same thing here.

I guess its just training kicking in, but when I hear the phrase "pull up" I'm going to interpret it as an immdiate emergency situation, slam the thrust levers full forward, and pull on the yoke as hard as I can.  EGPWS says "Pull up!", a controller should say "go around" or "cancel approach/landing clearance"

Is this just a canadian thing?

Depends on where you are on final. If you're close in, a 'pull up' would indicate more urgency than a 'go around'.

Except that is an interpretation/opinion.  The FAA rarely has any rules that are open to interpretation (and most of those that do fall into the grey area do so for a reason).

Keep in mind, I am talking about the U.S. NAS only here.  I am not sure if "pull up" is canadian for "go around"

If an controller were to tell me to "pull up" that is non-standard phraseology.  Non-standard phraseology usually comes into play into 2 areas (which ironically fall at complete opposite ends of the spectrum): a very relaxed situation that has a lot of leniency (when deviating around weather a controller says "Go ahead and maneuver however you need to to get around or through the weather and let me know what you need") or an immediate/urgent situation when standard phraseology might just not get the point accross (think back to the guy who was screaming on an FSS freq and the briefer talked him through a spin recovery).

As I see it, it doesn't matter whether I'm on a 5 mile final at 1000' or over the MM at 200', if a controller tells me to "go around" then it is as simple as that, I go around.  But if the controller jumps on and says "Pull up!" I'm going to get the feeling that my life is in imminent danger (there is an aircraft below me).

Sorry to drag this topic....off topic.

It is the Canadian version of "Go Around"


344.11
Instruct the aircraft to pull-up if necessary.
(P)
344.11 Phraseology:
PULL-UP AND GO AROUND, (reason).

Old Canadian CAR definition of 'Go around'...
"This command is given if there is an aircraft still on the runway".

I believe the military uses 'pull up...', or used to. As when an aircraft is otherwise likely to collide with something, or the gear is still up, or a large flock of birds just got in the way.

As stated, "pull up and go around" is the correct phraseology here, not just "pull up".

I am happy to read Canadian ATC includes the action the pilot needs to properly execute a go-around.  Had they not included that, I am sure there would have been at least one pilot who forgot to pull-up.  :-)  :-)

Now that we're getting humorous...
If I were told to 'pull up', I would take that to mean 'increase altitude immediately'.
If I were told to 'go around', I might just do a low pass on the way.

Pictures of the incident can be found here:

These were taken by spotters and airport workers that day.

"Pull up and go around" is the correct phraseology.

I usually hear

"pull up and go around for practice" at YKZ or "pull up and go around traffic still on runway".

I woulda thunk that the "pull up" portion of the go around would be a given.  Guess not.  Its kinda like saying Cleared for takeoff and pull up once reaching rotation speed.  But thats just how us crazy cowboy Americans do it anyway.   :-D

Oh, and don't forget "cleared to land and decelerate on the runway"   :mrgreen:
