This is getting all too common.

Alright now this is starting to look a tad fishy. What's going on at the airports in Japan? Planes aren't some tiny thing and don't just collide into each other wily-nily. Something is a afoot.

Now another luckily less serious collision?! This is not normal. There are many airports int he world where two planes have never even gotten close let alone make contact.

This is a more of a common occurrence than you'd think and you're only hearing about this minor one in the news because we're still in the news cycle from the mishap at Haneda. You'd have a hard time finding a commercial airport where this hasn't ever happened.

All flights must be reduced until a full national investigation is undertaken before we have another serious crash and more lives are lost.

That's quite an overreaction.

What happens in Japan is that nothing untoward is reported for years and then when one big event occurs the media jumps upon it and then starts detailing anything tiny even related to the event.

Then when the venting is over....the cover-ups and other incidences keep going unreported until something catches the public's imagination and then it is reported again 10 or 15 years down the line.

This is how Japan partially shows how safe it is.

Japan's airports turning into a joke, better stop the bare bones staffing, cheap $skate approach, lives at stake!

Japan's airport safety is on the wane, that's real issue, things getting LESS safe. Airports can cry about open positions, just an excuse, staff up fools and pay some OT if need be!

Does Osaka International Airport (Itami) have anything other than a domestic terminal?

I don't think so.

Wow, there was incident involving a Japanese Airline at Chicago Ohare last month, too. It makes you almost have rethink not to fly on a Japanese Airline.

As others have mentioned, this happens way more than you realize. Nothing to do with Japan

Had this been two cars in a minor accident this would not be reported, because two aircraft were involved, some people go off into panic mode. There are far more accidents with cars than there are airplanes, I wonder if these same people blame Toyota, and Honda as it appears they blame ANA?

. . . be careful about pilots being overworked . . . .

Two planes collide wing to wing and both fly off without delay or checking? Isn't that MOST dangerous?

Japans Quality is diminishing. Aging population. Why aren’t the pilots names being released? No deep bow photo?
