I’ve been fascinated by the raising of the Costa Concordia ever since she capsized on the shores of Tuscan island of Giglio in January 2012, with the loss of 32 lives. Many other’s around the world have been following this engineering feat online. Yesterday I struggled to connect to the Giglio Cam, this morning, I couldn’t get there.
I tried several backdoor’s, and I found G captain has the best coverage. The BBC, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-24104643 has several camera’s so you can watch the Costa Concordia rise by her waterline.
The birdseye view of the Concordia is accompanied by a very good graphic on the current state of the parbuckling project. http://gcaptain.com/ship-photo-birds-eye-view-of-costa-concordia-wreck/
Reuters has an excellent feed here also. http://live.reuters.com/Event/Raising_the_Costa_Concordia
I’d planned on going to the pool this morning, but at the rate they are raising the Concordia, she will be level by the time I get back.
