Time to find out what happened to JL123

Although it is nearly 35 years since the JL123 (also known as JAL123) crash, there are still many questions – at least in the Japanese language materials – that remain about what really happened on 12 August 1985.

I have already written about some of the issues in my posts about my JL123 research and a summary of the crash itself, and in my books Dealing with Disaster in Japan: Responses to the Flight JL123 Crash and Osutaka: A Chronicle of Loss in the World’s Largest Single Plane Crash. I also mentioned in my post ‘Post 123‘ that I would be continuing my research about JL123, and, for example, the issues of how JL123 is understood today through the media (news, documentaries, movies, social media) will be a feature of a chapter that I am currently working for an edited collection on Japanese media.

Today I read a very interesting blog post (in Japanese) about the moves to have what happened to JL123 reinvestigated. On that post you can find a link to the Change.org page for the petition – or you can find it directly here. Although the page is in Japanese, the signing can be done easily enough in your own language. Please support this campaign.
