According to the company, the planes that collided with each other were found at Itami Airport in Osaka city, located in the west of the country, at around 10:10 local time this Thursday.
Apparently, both the planes were covering the same national route of Osaka-Matsuyama and Fukuoka-Osaka and according to the information given by the airport and some local media, all this confusion happened on the runway.
Fortunately, as reported from the airport, no passengers on either plane were injured in the incident, which caused moments of panic when the collision occurred.
This is not the first time this has happened in Japan.
According to local authorities in Japan, the incident that occurred this Thursday, February 1, is another in the list of latest incidents that have occurred in this first month of 2024.
And almost exactly a month earlier on January 2, a Japan Airlines commercial airliner and a Japan Coast Guard aircraft collided head-on, causing a fire and killing five servicemen.
Two weeks after this accident, two commercial planes loaded with passengers collided again at Hokkaido’s new Chitose Airport, located on one of Japan’s main islands. There is no information about anyone being injured there.
Ultimately, a few days later, an All Nippon Airways airliner, bound for Seattle, United States, had to return to Tokyo in an emergency because a passenger had bitten an attendant on the arm. Light off.
According to an ANA airline spokesperson at the time, it was a 55-year-old American man who bit the flight attendant’s arm while she was “very drunk”, leaving her slightly injured.
This last fact generated so much ridicule and comment that the Japanese network TBS quoted the passenger as telling authorities he had “no recollection at all” of his behavior during that trip.
This case was so viral on social networks that many users and Internet users classified what happened as “the beginning of a zombie movie”.
