A FedEx cargo plane crashed and killed its two pilots in Tokyo on Tuesday. The wreckage was quickly cleaned up by workers and the runway was soon reopened.

“We have a team of experts here to work closely with our folks here in Japan, and with the government authorities, to get all the necessary information about the incident, and we’re going to spend as much time as necessary until we get to all the issues and the facts and the information that we need,” said William Margaritis, senior vice president of communication of FedEx.

    It was opened the next day! not soon!
    Also the Narita Express trains were a disaster, it took 3 hours to do a 50 minutes way.

    I went to the airport at the same time that happened for getting some friends who came from Spain.
