Aircraft Incident Investigation Report

Aircraft in snowDecember 2014

Client: Japan Transport Safety Board (through JTC)

Having safely negotiated several marine accident reports over the last few years, we have now been upgraded to air incidents. On Christmas Day 2012, the pilot of a plane travelling on a Japanese domestic flight misjudged his approach in snowy conditions and landed outside the runway. He had been told to expect “dry snow”, when in fact it was “wet”! He almost certainly had not had a glass of sherry, and had not been distracted by the sight of a white Christmas. Luckily, no one was hurt and everyone got home safely – just like in the films.
