alexx:old3eyes:freitasm: As usual, the Boston Globe has impressive pictures in their The Big Picture blog: http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2011/03/massive_earthquake_hits_japan.html
Was it just good luck or did they manage to get all the planes out of the Sendai airport??
The caption for photo #5 says: "Light planes and vehicles sit among the debris after they were swept by a tsumani that struck Sendai airport in northern Japan. (Kyodo News/Associated Press)" so it looks like the answer is no, at least not all the planes.
I was referring to the commercial stuff as there were passengers on the roof who were waiting for flites..
