Wow! Military aircraft approaches Birmingham Airport before aborting and performing a ‘go around’

A Royal Air Force Airbus A400M military aircraft practiced landing at Birmingham's BHX Airport in England on July 1. The pilot lined up the huge 4 propeller plane with the landing lights, decreasing its altitude before it suddenly powered back up and aborted the approach. The RAF have done similar exercises throughout the pandemic whilst the skies were clear of passenger flights. Previously they would perform a ‘touch and go’, this means the plane would land on its wheels before rolling down the runway and taking off again, unlike on this occasion where the pilot aborted the landing.
