    Sept. 2, 9:00 a.m.: Another Comm'l Jet On Los Altos Approach Pulls Up & Makes Second Approach; This Time Due In Part To Reduced Visibility From Fog

    (Sept. 2, 2004) -- For at least the second time since August 28, a commercial jet on approach to LB Airport has pulled up, ascended and made a second approach.

    The maneuver by an American Airlines flight on Sept. 2 at approximately 9:00 a.m. was "due in part to reduced visibility from fog," said LB Airport Public Information Officer Sharon Diggs-Jackson. "For safety reasons, they circled and then turned back to rejoin the pattern for landing on runway 30," she added.

    An Los Altos area reader alerted us to this after hearing "a jet approaching and then go to full power," an unexpected "take-off" type thrust instead of the usual slow approach whine.

    On August 28, as first reported by, a JetBlue flight approaching over Los Altos pulled up and circled around for a second approach because some other aircraft downwind was experiencing radio failure, a precautionary action for safety purposes the FAA told

    The action was precautionary, FAA personnel told was not related to any problem involving the JetBlue aircraft.

    An FAA duty staffer described what occurred as basically a precautionary pilot action taken to ensure safety. The JetBlue flight landed without incident about five minutes later.
