Narrative:
Solaseed Air's flight SNJ/6J51 from Tokyo/Haneda to Miyazaki diverted to Kagoshima Airport (KOJ/RJFK) due to malfunction of right flap. The return flight was canceled. No personal injuries were reported.
The aircraft was flown to Miyazaki 24 hours later and back in service to Tokyo-Haneda thereafter.
However, the two subsequent flights out of Tokyo-Haneda (6J55 to Miyazaki and 6J15 to Kumamoto), both returned to land when the aircraft again suffered from the same flap issue.
