One of the deadliest plane crashes involving a single plane occurred the afternoon of August 12, 1985, when Japan Airlines Flight 123, a Boeing 747-SR, crashed near Mt. Osutaka, 62 miles southwest of Tokyo. The crash claimed the lives of 520 people, including singer Kyu Sakamoto (l), the only Japanese artist to reach No. 1 in the U.S. with 'Sukiyaki' in 1963. Miraculously, four people survived the crash.
