A post from an Australian to an aviation safety discussion board:

"Following the two problems with landings last week Japan Air System have done it again! This morning (Thursday)'s flight 751 from Itami to Aomori, an MD-81 with 159 on board, landed about 950 meters too far down the runway and overshot by about 140 meters, ending up in the grass past the 60 meter overrun area. It was snowing at Aomori with 1500m visibility at the time. TV pictures show the airport under quite a heavy depth of snow. Passengers had to be offloaded into buses, airport closed."
