Japan releases CCTV images of FedEx crash

The Japanese Transportation Safety Board (JTSB) has published a progress report and surveillance camera images on last year’s FedEx plane crash in Tokyo.

The logistics company’s Boeing MD-11 aircraft – which had 28,000lt of fuel on board, as well as 400kg of flammable cargo – was completely destroyed by the incident at Narita Airport in March 2009. Neither of the two pilots survived.

“The aircraft, while landing on runway 34L, initially bounced after touching down on its main gear,” reported Flight International. “It touched down a second time but bounced again, higher, then pitched down and contacted the runway with its nose-gear, then its main gear. The impact fractured the left wing, between the engine and the fuselage, and the first signs of fire erupted before the aircraft - with its right wing still intact - rolled inverted.”

JTSB officials have not reached a conclusion in their investigations to date.
