This incident has just been reported by the YOMIURI SHINBUN (Serious Japanese Newspaper).

JAL flight 2250 departing from Niigata bound for Itami Airport in Osaka took-off without clearance from the tower on the 16th of August. THe plane was an MD-90. It looks like ATC didn't realize it neither.

The plane eventually landed safely at Itami.

This is the second time this year, I'm wondering if JAL is really taking any serious measure in order to improve their safety.

I read recently - story about a train crash - that Japanese train-drivers get fired if they don't keep to schedule, no excuses accepted.

Horrible thought - but maybe it's the same deal for airline pilots?

The train crash story is indeed terrible. The train driver was running late because he overran the platform at a station. He had to go back and then lost a lot of time. In order to catch-up he was then driving faster than authorized in a curve. The trail derailed and ran into a building nearby.

As for the JAL incidents, I hope that pilots don't get fired if they are delayed by ATC.

If they had the same rules here, there wouldn't be a train-driver left in employment. Or a pilot, come to that - especially the ones that have to spend half their waking lives stacked over Kingsford-Smith.

Well, there was also a JL DC-10-40 from FUK bound for HNL (JAL058) that the #1 engine was spewing flames and parts as it took off. The plane turned around and landed safely. This happened sometime last week.

With all of these "incidents" that have happened to JL, thank God, no one has died. How many more bullets can JL dodge before they get hit?
