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.

I seriously doubt the quality of THY pilot training and recurrent training.

There were no less than 4 Captains in that 737 that stalled and crashed on approach to Amsterdam. Not one of them thought to check their speed at any point. Madness.
Another set of THY's finest recently bent an A330 on landing.

I've also read about a bunch of near misses too.

There were only 3 pilots in that cockpit, "1 Training Captain", "1 Junior F/O" in the r/h seat and one "Senior F/O" on the jumpseat....A big fark up nonetheless...

Well there are some expat drivers being employed, hopefully they make a difference. Mate of mine just started recently on 777's for them. He told me about a F/O that scared him recently. So yes it seems the line training needs improvement.
