Japan radiation drone makes emergency landing

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".
