Japan radiation drone makes emergency landing

Tokyo Electric Power Co said the T-Hawk caused no obvious damage to the facility.



Tokyo: A small aerial drone measuring radiation over Japan`s stricken Fukushima nuclear plant went out of control on Friday and made an emergency landing on a reactor building roof, the operator said.

Tokyo Electric Power Co said the T-Hawk, weighing nearly eight kilograms (17 pounds), caused no obvious damage to the facility.

"It went out of control and made an emergency landing on the roof of the reactor number two building," a TEPCO spokesman said, adding that "we see no fire or smoke at the moment".
The March 11 magnitude-9.0 quake and tsunami knocked out reactor cooling systems at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, causing fuel meltdowns, explosions and leaks of radiation into the air, soil and sea.
