Japanese pilot Katsutoshi Jitsukava, 10 times the alcohol limit, killed in Britain

London, United Kingdom:

A Japanese pilot was imprisoned 10 months on Thursday after being captured 10 times above the limit of alcohol shortly before taking off from London Heathrow Airport.

The first official, Katsutoshi Jitsukawa, 42, was sentenced to Isleworth Crown Court in western London.

The second Japanese pilot was arrested in Heathrow on October 28, after no breath test, 50 minutes before the Japanese flight JL44 with Tokyo had to withstand him on board.

"You're an experienced pilot, but you obviously have a drink for a long time, even before you have to go in that plane," said Judge Philip Matthews.

"The most important thing is the safety of all those who are in a very long distance flight, possibly 12 hours or more. Their safety is at stake in your sadness and drunkenness.

"The ability to take control of this aircraft is too scary to be considered. The possible consequences for those on board were catastrophic."

The court heard that security noticed that he smelled heavy alcohol, seemed drunk and had "glazed eyes," but the officer later noticed that he was "hard to stand straight."

The respiratory test revealed that he was more than 10 times the limit of 93 milligrams of alcohol at 100 milliliters breath. The legal flight limit is nine mg.

The Boeing 777 aircraft for which he was intended to fly, which could handle up to 244 passengers, eventually took 69 minutes.

Jitsukawa was found guilty of an obligation to perform aviation function if his ability was disturbed by alcohol. He appeared in court using a video signal from the Wandsworth prison in the south of London.

Bill Jimmy Jones, a lawyer for Jitsukaw, said insomnia and depression during long-distance travel arose during the trial.

The jitsukawa believes he is "a cruel shame" and apologized to the airline, passengers and his family "for the shame he had taken," said a lawyer.
