  • Description

    FIVE PEOPLE - TWO PILOTS, TWO TRAINED PILOTS AND A JAPANESE TRANSPORT MINISTRY EXAMINER - WERE KILLED YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) WHEN A CONVAIR 880 JET AIRLINER CRASHED ON THE RUNWAY OF TOKYO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.

    THE CRASH OCCURRED DURING A PROGRAMME OF TAKE-OFF AND LANDING MANOEUVRES.

    MORE THAN A THOUSAND SIGHTSEERS VISITING THE AIRPORT GROANED IN HORROR AS THEY WATCHED THE ACCIDENT.

    THE AIRCRAFT HAD LANDED AFTER A TRAINEE FLIGHT FROM HOKKAIDO. IT THEN TOOK OFF, BUT PLUMMETED TO EARTH AT THE END OF THE RUNWAY.

    THE ACCIDENT OCCURRED ON THE SAME RUNWAY ON WHICH A CANADIAN PACIFIC DC-8 JET AIRLINER CRASHED IN MARCH, KILLING SIXTY-FOUR PEOPLE.
