Episode 262 Show Notes   Topic of the show: On today’s show, we answer a question from a pilot that had a last second go-around with multiple aircraft in either direction.  What did ATC do right and what could they have done to improve the outcome of this traffic scenario?  What can the pilot do to prepare for an imminent go around and allow adequate time for ATC to formulate a backup plan?  We also discuss strange IFR taxi instructions, radio mistakes, and obstacle alerts for VFR pilots.  You don’t want to miss this episode!   Timely Feedback: 1.
