Been intrested in pic's & reserching for some time just what happened on that dreadfull day that took the HUGE ship & all 44 of its crew 4000 Meters down to the bottom of the sea in Just a couple of minutes, BUT i find it hard to see any pic's of the ship on the net, just wondered since this website (PCA) is so widley used if anyone can supply me with links or pic's.
Crosstrainer is right on this topic. It was a design fault that caused it to break it's back due to a fault in a bulkhead position near the bridge. I did watch the documentary about it and the families of the lost asking for the answers to what happened. I also remember watching a documentary about ships sinking in massive storms. The worst one I thought was a massive frieghter in the North Atlantic manned by a philipino crew which snapped in half. The crew had heard a big bang and noticed the stern had raised up in the water but, imagine the horror when they seen the bow of their ship sail past their bridge in the opposite direction! It is unreal to think of but it did actually happen.
