WN261 TPA->BWI 8/17 missed approach
« on: August 18, 2012, 08:37:43 AM »
We came in for approach and ended up going right over the runway (maybe about a thousand feet up?) for a second go around that got us on the ground.  Surprisingly, the cabin was somewhat calm.

Did anyone happen to catch this or have a recording of it?  I'm curious what the cause was.

I had a listen, it seems there was an airplane on the runway that was too slow in taking off. ATC ordered the go around but messed up your callsign since a US Air plane was chiming in at the same time but the southwest crew understood.
