Going missed and around in the King Air at KSJC


Recommended Posts

For reasons I don't understand, the ILS approach to RWY 30L didn't work for me in the twin-engine Beech King Air I was "flying." So I disengaged the autopilot, "went missed," flew around, and landed, all by hand. The King Air is a beast of an airplane and difficult to slow down even with the engines idling -- in Microsoft Flight Simulator at any rate. At one point I raised the nose to quickly shed airspeed. It's a technique that's called "mushing," and I used it to slow the plane to a safe speed range so I could lower the landing gear and extend the flaps.
