If anyone else remembers, I flew 13XJ at the end of 2022 on the same route but as JL524…

It’s been reported that the Dash neither had their transponder nor their lights on when it entered 34R. How this managed to happen, I have no idea.

This is what was left of VARIG 820, one of the worst aircraft fires registered:

And this is what’s left of the A350. Simply unbelievable how the entire fuselage vanished!

That’s two things now I’ve seen on the news from Japan that have been bad this year

I don’t think we’re getting updates for at least another three hours because it’s 5 AM over there.
I’m desperately hoping nothing bad happens on the 3rd.

If I had to guess why that happened, it’d be the material - A350’s carbon fiber vs 707’s aluminum

Now I’m waiting to see what remains of the Q300. I’d have to guess not much though, it’s like an 18 wheeler vs a small car

Had no idea it went off the runway tbh.

Year’s not off to a great start. Hope it’s not a sign.
