All aircraft involved used GCA approaches for landings. There were no missed
approach procedures.....if you missed your approach, you were automatically
cleared for return to your home base. In that way, they were able to keep the
flow of aircraft moving and on schedule.

That, nonetheless, is a missed approach procedure.

What makes you think they were based across the Atlantic? This was the
Cold War, the planes were based in England and more eastern locations:
Holland, Fance, West Germany...
