All Nippon Airways (ANA) Flight 60 was a Boeing 727-81 aircraft that crashed on February 4, 1966. All 133 passengers and crew were lost when the aircraft crashed into Tokyo Bay about 10.4 km (6.5 miles) from Tokyo's Haneda International Airport in clear weather conditions while on a night approach.

This accident was one of five fatal aircraft disasters -- four commercial and one military -- in Japan in 1966. One month later Canadian Pacific Airlines Flight 402 struck the approach lights and a seawall at Tokyo International, killing 64 of 72 on board. Less than 24 hours later, BOAC Flight 911, a Boeing 707, taxied past the still smoldering wreckage of that DC-8, then broke up in flight shortly after departure, killing all 124 passengers and crew. Japan Air Lines Convair 880-22M was crashed and killed five people on August 26. All Nippon Airways Flight 533 crashed and killed 50 people on November 13. The combined effect of these five accidents shook public confidence in commercial aviation in Japan, and both Japan Air Lines and All Nippon Airways were forced to cut back some domestic service due to reduced demand.
