    Didn't they first do a missed approach at Aspen and then tried again to land with a 33 knot tailwind that was mentioned by the tower? Three experienced pilots still decided to attempt to land again in a high tailwind. Isn't that inviting trouble?

    That's the pressure of private flying. Tough to tell the custy "no."

    Obviously, the alternative turns out to be tougher.

    In the coverage here, the missed approaches were not mentioned, but really, all we get are a few quick snippets.
