Transavia Airlines flight HV5068 suffered a windshear encounter and low fuel situation during approach to Amsterdam-Schiphol International Airport (AMS/EHAM), the Netherlands in stormy weather.

The flight then entered a holding pattern at an altitude of about 3350 feet until 13:35 hours (1135Z). Visibility had decreased and winds had remained the same. The flight crew decided to divert to Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport.

At 13:54 (11:54Z) the approach was abandoned as well in severe weather circumstances. The flight crew radioed: “Transavia 3 Kilo in the go around due to windshear, but ah, we are getting low on fuel.”
The Tower controllers reply was interrupted by an unintended transmission by HV5068: “Speed, speed, speed, speed.”
