Japan radiation drone makes emergency landing

Tokyo Electric Power Co said the T-Hawk, weighing nearly eight kilograms, 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.
