    Emirates A380 made touch-and-go in Amsterdam / Schiphol Airport?

    Just looking at my nearby airport Schiphol and confused about the track the Emirates A380 made just a few minutes ago.
    Anyone seen this in real-life? And why was this extra round made? Emergency?

    Probably a go around, could be because of various reasons.

    Not the first time: http://x264.nl/dump/ek147-2013-04-18...d-approach.jpg
    Runway 27 is usually only used with strong winds and since runway 22 is too short for the A380, this happens sometimes. Strong winds from the sides.
    Also got a recording in Dutch from the KLM behind the Emirates going around, quick fun: http://x264.nl/dump/ek147-2013-04-18...-by-klm92v.mp3

    Edit: Oh the original post was from 2013, same month, well reply is still valid.
