Photo Comment

A year before the photo, on November 22, 1968, JA8032 gently descended into the salt water of San Francisco Bay. JAL quickly recovered the aircraft and handed it to United to repair at great expense. It was delivered back to JAL at the end of March. JAL renamed it Hidaka after the incident.
