A P-3C of Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF), operating a training flight, suffered runway excursion at Shimofusa Air Base. The Orion first veered off the unway 01 (2250 m long) to the left slightly, rotating 90 degrees to the right to cross over the runway and stuck on the grass. No reported injuries. No fire. A video of the scene shows that the nose gear seems to be retracted. Four propellers shaved the surface of the grass and soil at the point of rest.
On 28th May, JMSDF issued an interim accident report. The cause of the accident was trainee's failed landing followed by trainer's wrong take over maneuver.
