I am sure all the Saab crews are well versed in dealing with adverse weather conditions.
The point is that unless sufficient visual reference is gained at DA, then they go around and fly a missed approach.
Depending just what they saw, or didn't see at DA, may result in one more attempt to fly the approach. If unsuccessful a diversion, probably to Newcastle for a CAT 1 ILS which in round terms, descending to a decision height of 200ft with RVR minima 550m.

Flying in poor weather is not the issue. The issue is the DA / RVR minima on a NPA.
