JTSB issues report on Boeing 767 landing mishap
4 June 2009

The Japan Transport Safety Board (JTSB) released their final report of their investigation into the serious incident involving a JAL Boeing 767 at Tokyo-Haneda Airport in June 2005.
This incident occurred as the aircraft landed; it is estimated that it bounded on its first touchdown. The nose gear then touched down before the aircraft weight was completely placed on the main landing gears, placing an excessive load on the nose gear, and consequently, damaging the nose gear.
Excessive forward operation of the control column was the most significant factor. (JTSB)
