A THY Turkish Airlines Airbus A319-100, registration TC-JLP performing flight TK-295 (dep Sep 27th) from Istanbul (Turkey) to Sochi (Russia), was on final approach to Sochi's runway 02 at about 00:54L (21:54Z Sep 27th) in low visbility when the crew went around from low height (below 400 feet MSL) due to windshear. The aircraft turned left in conflict with the missed approach procedure requiring a turn to the right and was climbing towards terrain when ATC intervened instructing the aircraft to immediately climb to FL060 which was read back and complied with by the crew, then tower instructed to immediately turn right, the crew read back that instructions but continued to climb straight ahead towards terrain. ATC therefore instructed the aircraft to climb to FL150, which took the aircraft above terrain and into safety. The aircraft was subsequently vectored for another ILS approach to runway 06 and landed safely on runway 06 about 30 minutes after the go-around.

Mountain tops around Sochi rise up to 2520 meters/8260 feet.
