According to NHK, a Japanese public broadcaster, people scarily witnessed smoke coming out of an ANA flight while it made a safe landing at northern Japan’s Shin Chitose airport. It was on Wednesday when the horrible flight incident was reported. About 200 passengers were travelling on that flight from the Haneda Airport in Tokyo. The good news is that none of the passengers or the crew suffered from any injury.

Seeing smoke emerging from the wing area of the flight looked confusingly scary for everyone. The flow decreased to some extent only after the engines were completely stopped from further operations. While the officials of the airline did not respond to the incident right after the news broke out all around the world, NHK stated the possible reasons for the smoke coming out from the wing area of the aircraft.

According to the Japanese public broadcaster, oil leakage might be a crucial reason behind the frightening incident. One of the indicators of the cockpit reportedly did not have sufficient oil pressure. It requires a specific pressure in the system to operate and control the movements of the flight. One indicator had a dip in oil pressure, according to a report by CityNews Toronto.
