    Background: TOKYO, JAPAN

    Controversy broke out in Japan on Saturday (13 February) when investigators revealed that a dispute had developed in the cabin of a DC8 airliner moments before it crashed into Tokyo Bay. It was revealed that the captain, 35-year-old Seiji Katagiri, had cried out shortly before landing, and that the flight engineer was trying to hold him down. The co-pilot apparently believed the captain had done something wrong, possibly putting one of the engines into reverse. It was also revealed that the captain had earlier undergone psychiatric treatment. Twenty-four of the plane's 174 passengers died in the crash. Meanwhile investigators have been removing the remains of the aircraft from the waters of Tokyo Bay where it has lain since the 9 February crash.
