    Question about KAL's A388 Arrival April 15

    I was enjoying the great weather yesterday at the beach in Brooklyn. I was thrilled to see KAL flight 81 fly overhead at 1223. I thought I was seeing a mirage when I saw the KAL A388 again doing the same approach at 1240. I can't figure what I saw. My only explanation is that it made a miss to Rwy 13L or 13R. What could have happened? Thanks.

    She went around... first tried 13R, then landed 13L

    Thanks you are correct. My camera switched back from EDT to EST so I thought the arrival was at 1240 while it was actually at 1140. The A388 went-around and had to make the approach to 13L; this explains why I saw the same aircraft twice. I have since re-set the time on my camera and will get into the habit of re-setting.
