    Default First crash of 2024...

    A Japan Air Lines A350 landing at Haneda hit a Japan Coast Guard Dash-8 on touchdown and caught fire.
    All pax and crew off the JAL A350 were evacuated safely with some injuries, but 5 of the 6 Coast Guard crew are confirmed dead.

    Not a great start to the year, but as far as the bright side (if you can call it that) the A350 seems to have held up well post impact to allow full evacuation before burning to the ground.
