misd-again - methinks you have not done too many NPA approaches to Mumbai RW09? Lighting at Mumbai is a disgrace with many of the approach lights and runway lights not working but, if the aircraft didn't see Mumbai then they definitely didn't see Juhu. The visibility given is usually questionable at Mumbai and often worse than given by ATIS due to the many, many smoke fires from the people who live around the airport. They initiated a GA at 1000' having realised they were not in a position to land and completed a second attempt without incident. Happens somewhere everyday, I've seen more than one or two miss the first attempt at the Canarsie approach at JFK when the viz. is down.
