Well, it appears the pilots involved understood the controller's words, given that they gave clear readbacks, and followed the clearances accurately up to the GA. Except for 47C's slight confusion about the exact crosswind to follow.

Regarding the path of 1547C, it was on the go virtually directly over the top of the SKW, since the piano keys on 33 are only a few hundred meters south of 26 centerline (see airport layout in the video). And 47C was given a slight left turn to crosswind 33 (240) which would put it even further south. Unless SKW was a helicopter taking off straight up, there was no conflict there at any time.

However, putting 47C onto a left circuit and eventual left downwind did "box in" the options for the controller (and pilots) regarding the landing jet (ASH5826) - 47C on the left side, rising terrain on the right side. Thus the "fly runway heading" instruction for the go-around, resulting in the conflict with the departing SKW.
