An Interesting Arrival into Sydney for Tigerair's A320 VH-VNF from Proserpine Airport Thursday

It was certainly an interesting ride for the passengers on Tigerair (Tiger Airways) Australia flight TGW393 from Proserpine / Whitsunday Coast Airport to Sydney on Thursday 23 October with not one but four approaches needed at Sydney Airport before the A320 - VH-VNF - could touch down.

Online flight tracking application Flightradar24 screen captures show VH-VNF flying around the Sydney airport circuit area for several minutes while it conducted three missed approaches onto both Runway 34 Right and Left.

Reports suggest the missed approaches came at time when the airport was experiencing changeable wind conditions which resulted in a runway change. There was also a report that VH-VNF went around on one approach due to being over-speed during its final approach.

VH-VNF did eventually land on Runway 16 Right and was later noted flying into Brisbane on a scheduled service.
