Airbus A320-232, G-EUUR
During a day IMC approach to Runway 23 at Glasgow the aircraft was given, and the flight crew accepted and actioned, a ‘terrain unsafe’ clearance. The flight crew then climbed the aircraft upon receipt of a GPWS warning. The minimum terrain clearance was 959 feet. During vectors for a second approach the aircraft was again descended below the permitted altitude, though in a location where there was no risk of terrain collision.
