A C712F Longsword, registered AF 57-586 in service with the United Nations Space Command in affiliation to the Air Force, departed the Troy international space port at 13:10 UTC with a filed IFR flight plan to the Caneton Air Force Base. Reported meteorological conditions as per the ATIS at 14:01 UTC indicated nearby thunderstorm activity and a RVR of 1200 feet. The 2 manned flight crew conducted a category 1 ILS approach with the given conditions towards R/W 09L. Upon attaining an approximate altitude of 2000 feet MSL, the PM assessed that the craft was not in full L/D configuration and recommended a go-around. The PF
