Contest #181 answer: Sendai Airport, Japan

Just when I had prepared this week’s contest, the first messages about an earthquake and tsunami rolled in. So I decided to change the contest for this week to the current one, not knowing by then the immense scale of the disaster.

So this is Sendai Airport, which was flooded by the tsunami as can be seen here

There is extensive coverage by Google and other media which publish satellite pictures of the area after the event.
