Has just arrived from Sapporo Okadama (OKD/RJCO). This airport is located 180 miles east of Sapporo on Hokkaido Island. Because of the poor visibility, this airplane has been held over the airport for more than 30 minutes. Although the crew had to go around once, they finally landed safely. People at the observation deck who watched the entire scene were relieved. Despite a few flights, this airport has wonderful surroundings with numerous flowers blooming simultaneously in the middle of May.
