Associated Press reported that a JAL DC10, bounded from Fukuoka to Hong Kong with 216 on board, almost hit HK's highest mountain on Sunday May 19. The mountain was covered by fog.

Officials said that an air traffic controller warned the pilot to change course and avoid the crash. The DC10 was came within 3.7KM of the summit of the mountain.

JL753, the DC10, was just 188m higher than the mountain top. The plane was trying to avoid a storm near HKG.

Chill out 9V-SVA, because this topic has been posted twice. He's just giving the 1st link of the story anyways.

It reminds me of the JAL B747 jet that crashed in Japan more than 10 tears ago, though different situation, but still...that crash was also the crash that occured the most deaths on one single aircraft, more than 500. JAL pilots better watch out!

Best Regards

Yes I know PK, but he just posted a link without even reading the thread and posting some comments.

Actually, JL 123(the ill-fated flight) was caused by JAL pilots. Actually it was indirectly Boeing, who shoddily repaired the 741.

9V-SVA, your post doesn't really make sense. The JAL123 disaster was caused by a bad repair, the crew were miraculous in keeping the aircraft airborne for as long as they did.

Weather diversions with terrain in the area are high risk, Hong Kong having come close to claiming many aircraft from renowned airlines. Ask those who have had to replace their windows on Lantau Island!

Sorry. I meant to say it WAS NOT caused by the JAL pilots.

HKGSpotter1 accidentally give out the wrong info.

It's not JL537, it's JL753.

If it's JL537, then I'll consider no one post about this before.

9V-SVA:
Am I missing something here? Why are you making such a big deal with what Hkgspotter1 posted? All he did was just point out that there's another post discussing the same topic (it's common practice in these forums), yet you call him ignorant? OK...

Ah, just as I was typing this, your post got deleted. It's good the forum moderators single out & delete posts with no substance  Smile

God forbid if the JAL DC-10 did crash into Tai Mo Shan, it would’ve been horrible. I’m curious as to what the reactions of the passengers were after they landed, they must’ve heard by now how close their plane was to crashing into a mountain. I wonder if they noticed anything on approach. I don’t think weather was an issue in this incident, the plane was in the wrong place, and the bad weather just made it harder for the pilot to see that himself.

According to Japan Times:

http://www.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/getarticle.pl5?nn20020524a7.htm

I heard that the Japan Transport Ministry just implemented a new policy that all pilots should follow the information made available by there on board computers instead of ATC. I guess this was implemented due to an extreme near miss JAL encountered last year.

Jiml1126,

If you read my reply I linked to vh-daq's post. NOT MINE. This is still a double post.

I'm serious when I say I've always liked your posts as they are always interesting.

A regrettable incident to hear of...

And to those who compares passage accidents of JAL,
please distinguish;
1. B747SR crash in 1985 was due directly to Boeing's bad repair, indirectly to JCAB and JAL ground mechanic who let it as it had been.
2 nearmiss last year between two JAL flights was assumed of ATC's failure.

By the way, please note about the JA8119 picture which AJ shows above, I have long wondered if the black stein around lower part of the ladder and the tail corn have something to do with the accident; both of these part were blown away when the cabin pressured air bursted out airborne.
