Flight Over Reactor

The director of the U.N.-affiliated IAEA, Hans Blix, flew over the reactor Thursday and said that smoke was coming from it

But Rosen, an American who is director of the agency’s division of nuclear safety, said today that the smoke was light gray and appeared to come from smoldering sand, lead, boron and dolomite thrown over the reactor to smother the fire. He said smoke was thicker and darker when the fire was burning.
