Here's my interpretation:

At 01:15 into the clip, a service ground tug towing an aircraft (Hughes 5615 if I heard correctly) is cleared to cross rwy 4L on Delta taxiway, which is parallel to / next to 27C.

UAL1113 is told to go around.  They do so but sounded surprised, probably because their landing was going fine and they didn't see any incursion.

As they're being vectored back for landing, the supervisor / other controller offers the explanation they didn't explicitly ask for but probably welcomed (and perhaps their airline would require them to explain, though I'm not an airline pilot so this is pure speculation):  that an automated runway incursion system called for a go-around due to the aircraft under tow (the 5615 tug), which didn't seem like the human controllers or pilots perceived as a threat, but for some reason the automated system did.

If all of the above is true, to me it's a bit like the airplane's traffic collision avoidance system, where the pilots obey a Resolution Advisory, contrary to ATC instructions, and then explain to the controller why once things settle down.   I know KORD is a vast airport with past incursion concerns so I'd bet the warning systems are followed carefully.

Nice find Brendan - I'll be interested to follow if others weigh in to validate or correct my theory.

Hi All,

Curious about what happened when United 1113 was asked to go around (approx 16:35z) . Something about an aircraft under tow and a system “not liking it?”

Does anyone know what likely happened here?

Both pilot and passenger walked away

A Spirit Airlines plane that landed at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport from Tampa, Florida, on Sunday morning briefly caught fire on the runway after one of its landing gear brakes overheated.

Atlanta Fire Rescue put out the fire after the brakes in the landing gear ignited at 9:25 a.m., the airport said in a statement to ABC News. There were no reported injuries.

"Spirit Flight 383 from Tampa to Atlanta landed safely in Atlanta International Airport and upon landing one of the brakes overheated," Spirit said in a statement on Sunday.

"The aircraft was towed to the gate where Guests safely deplaned without any injuries. Thank you to the Atlanta first responders for immediately meeting the aircraft. The plane will be temporarily removed from service for maintenance."

Sorry for the late reply - don't monitor these forums regularly.
As for Bruit - I think I had it in the list at one time, but may have dropped it due to poor reception. If I think of it when I get home later, I will add it. I'll post back here when that's done.

Thanks for listening!
