The Tsunami at Sea and from the Air

This is what the tsunami looked like to crew on the bridge of a Japanese coastguard vessel.
Hard to tell the scale but you get an idea of how big this wave is by a) how long the ship travels ‘uphill’, and b) the noises being made by the crew as they come over the crest.

This is what it looked like from a helicopter. These weren’t our kind of waves. These were a whole other sort. Hard to imagine what was going through the minds of the people in this helicopter as they watched the ocean invade whole towns at such a shocking speed.
