On a bustling day at Tokyo's Haneda Airport, a Japan Airlines (JAL) plane faced a harrowing incident as it became engulfed in flames on the runway following a collision with a Japan Coast Guard aircraft. The intense scene, captured by television cameras, depicted the aircraft ablaze as it navigated the tarmac, culminating in a vivid burst of orange flames. Despite the severity of the situation, the approximately 400 passengers on the JAL flight were successfully evacuated, preventing a potential disaster during the busy New Year holiday period.

The rapid and effective response from emergency crews, who worked tirelessly to extinguish the flames, along with the smooth evacuation process, underscored the airport's commendable preparedness for such emergencies.
