Quoting TC957 (Reply 2): was last in HND around 4 weeks ago and saw this aircraft through the open hanger doors surrounded by a mass of scaffolding and equipment, so it looked like repairs are well under way.

Wow!! According to the article that goes along with the video, the plane was coming in to land at Haneda and the pilot decided at the last second to do a go-around but the thrust reversers were already deployed. Like the article said, that could have been quite a disaster. Does anyone know if the plane did a go-around or did he have to come to a stop? The video stops just short of the outcome. I would really love to know.

Quoting RobK (Reply 6): 0:06 - Is it just me that is amused that "Boeing 777" in Japanese is "Boeing a-na-na-na-na-nah" ?
I'm sure "seven seven seven" sounds just as funny to them. "7" in Japanese is "nana". It could also be "hachi" but not in this situation. You'll probably find it funny too that both of these words are also Japanese names (though "Hachi" is usually the name of a pet, not a human). So it's like naming someone "Seven" in English - just like on Seinfeld.

It did a go-around.
