What: Japan Air Commuter Bombardier DHC-8-402 en route from Osaka to Miyazaki
(Also reported as a Havilland Dash 8-400)
Where: Osaka International Airport
When: Thursday Aug 20
Who: 22 passengers and four flight crew members
Why: Breitbart reports that while en route, the Bombardier’s hydraulic system indicator light reported a hydraulics malfunction. The plane landed safely with no reported injuries and was towed off the runway. It is not clear if the hydraulics or the indicator was at the source of the problem, but JAC is investigating.

2 Camarillo Crashes in a week

What: Experimental aircraft with a single engine
Where: Ventura County’s Camarillo Airport.
When: Tuesday
Who: Pilot and passenger
Why: The plane had experienced mechanical problems and on return overshot the runway and flipped over just past the landing strip. No injuries.

This should not be confused with a similar incident Monday when another single-engine plane was towing a banner, flipped and the pilot was killed.
