The above aerial photo taken by a small unmanned drone and released by AIR PHOTO SERVICE. It shows damaged Unit 3 of the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Okumamachi, Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan.
You can view more pictures from the Air Photo Service on their website.
This photo appears to be reactor No 4 comparing it to previous photos I have downloaded. Could this be clarified please

It is number 4... the number 4 is at the top right corner of the building in white paint

One thing I do not understand, from this phenomenal photo: the integrity of the containment structures has been much remarked upon, in all the discussions of the radiation dangers here -- but how can anyone know? Clearly it is chaos, down there.
The buildings have just been through one of the world's worst earthquakes, and a giant tsunami, and an enormous explosion -- there is junk and structural debris scattered everywhere, shown clearly in this photo, the building looks shattered, impossible to get in there to look at things at all -- the building itself still is a danger to anyone who would try -- and this particular mess is entirely radioactive, hot, unfriendly, deadly...
So how can anyone know? Surely all the metering inside is dead: broken by the quake and explosion, drenched by the water, melted by the heat. That single long sprinkler hose, which some very brave souls have gotten in there now, is pathetic -- looks like a lawn sprinkler, can't be doing much good on a warm sunny day let alone against intense radiation heat, is this really all these nuclear power people can do in terms of "safety" for this technology?
So a suited worker runs into that chaos with a hand-held Geiger counter and then runs out... That tells us nothing about the integrity of the containment structure inside, now-buried beneath all the rubble as this photo shows. To assess that teams would have to comb that structure minutely, top to bottom, inch by inch, to look for cracks, holes, weak spots, melted spots... a structure still buried in radioactive explosion debris...
This photo shows, clearly, that any reassurances supplied about containment structure integrity in this disaster so far have been ignorance and lies. We, and they, still know nothing, about that.
