Setting Off Fireworks in Potions Class
Voldemort had to fly out because Nurmengard had anti-Apparation wards. It wasn't a matter of getting within "range" of the Malfoy Manor, but of getting to the closest area that would allow him to Apparate.

Missing your destination would be the least of your worries.
