The Schleicher ASK23B, JA2409, a privately operated glider, left the Nagano City gliding field in Nagano City, Nagano Prefecture, by winch launching on May 12, 2007, on a pleasure flight. At about 15:24, while flying towards Mount Taro (elevation 997m), located approximately 4.5 km to the southwest of the gliding field, it collided with a power line and crashed.
It is estimated that this accident was caused by that while making ridge soaring from Mt. Tenno to Mt.
