Actual burnt letter from JAL123

Many readers have written to me, asking for pictures of actual burnt letters.
I have chosen to display one letter from the tragical accident in 1985, when Japan Airlines lost its JAL123 flight on route Osaka. Seven "Ishos" (burnt letters) was found in the wreckage. The letters are on display at the Safety Promotion Center in Tokyo. This specific letter was written on a safety folder.

Visit the Safety center here.

Invited to leading morning show in national radio

Yesterday, I was invited to "Morgonpasset i P3", a national morning show for a somewhat younger audience. We talked about The Burnt Letter Society and the phenomena of letters written in airplanes, during the last minutes before a crash.

Listen to the show here.
