To me the descibed landing method seems to be a 'circling', i.e. you do the
approach as to land with tailwinds(!) but instead do a (visual) turn around
to land with headwinds.

Reasons to do that could be missing/unserviceable approach nav aids or, in
this case, still more severe cb for the headwind runway.
