Earthquake 2011: 8.9 Magnitude Quake Strikes Japan

All of us at Air Age Media are deeply saddened by the recent devastation in Japan. As of this morning (Friday, March 11, 2011), we learned that an 8.9-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Japan very close to the city of Sendai, and triggered tsunamis that hit northern Japan. The devastation has been severe. Many well-known RC manufacturers call Japan home and we hope and pray for the safety of all who are near and around the quake area. We will continue to observe all breaking news and will update this page as we learn how our RC industry friends have fared during this terrible act of nature.
