Summary

The Airbus A300 aircraft was intercepting the runway 16R localiser for an ILS approach. During the intercept and while the A300 was on final approach in cloud, ATC requested its pilot to slow his aircraft. On the final request, the pilot was informed that his aircraft had a closure rate of 60 kts on a preceding F50 aircraft. When the A300 broke out of cloud at 1,300 ft, its pilot saw that the F50 aircraft was only about two miles ahead. He suggested to ATC that he side step his aircraft to approach for runway 16L but the aerodrome controller directed a go-around.
