2011 quake / tsunami pix
As would any information about what happened to the passenger planes that were on the ground - there's speculation that as soon as the quake hit they took off in the 45 minutes to an hour before the tsunami, but no sources to back this up. Sites such as flightstats show a number of planes that would have been at the gates or apron at the time. Robef (talk) 23:13, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
Second Class Airport
The wikilink for "second class airport" leads to an article which says by law in Japan there are four classes of airport
- Hub airports
- Regional airports
- Joint-use airports
- Other airports
There is no possible way for anyone to know which is meant since the Hub airports have three categories:
- privately-managed--the three largest international airports;
- national airports run by the central government and;
- special regional airports run by prefecture or municipal governments.
I have removed the term "second class" and its link. If you know which category it is, then please insert that specific term.
