In a nutshell, JAL is planning on displaying pieces at Haneda airport of the 747SR that crashed in August, 1985, after a bulkhead ruptured.

It sounds, at least, as though the display will not be in the central terminal - I can't even imagine that - but in a separate facility.

Since it is where most airline employees will be able to see, I think that at least is a good idea. Will it draw many other visitors? Time will tell, I guess...

Here is a link to the accident description:

Another idea would be to put on display the crash of BOAC 707 near Mt. Fuji in March 1966. That would be a lesson for airline pilots.

I guess they're trying to remind employees the consequences of cutting corners in safety

where did JL employees cut corners in that case, except by contracting to Boeing who did a botched repair!

A bit off topic, but the Samurai Blue logo as seen here:

looks pretty cool.

Is it a good idea though? To show people a crashed aircraft right before they are about to fly themselves? If somebody's already a bit afraid of flying, it won't really help them.

Well you see plenty of boat anchors around where shipwrecks occur doubling as memorials ... so I guess there's no reason why you can't have aircraft wreckage as a memorial.

Sure, but a wreckage is much more graphic, and also at the point of embarkation, IMHO it will creep some people out. I would be ok with it, as long as it's done tastefull. For example, the memorial of the DC8-62 that crashed in Surinam is the 4 engines on a pedastal. I think very tastefully done, but also at the cemetary. (the crash-site was in the jungle, so a bit of a difficult place for a memorial).
I think that something similar would be ok, it all depends on how it's handled. It's of course always a good idea to remember the ones who died in that crash (or any other for that matter)

Boeing repair team accomplished aft pressure bulkhead repair had a row of rivets in single shear. APB repair failed, rapid decompression blew off most of the vertical.
