How Costa Concordia looks today

//How Costa Concordia looks today

Follow-up to yesterday’s announcement that Costa Concordia captain Francesco Schettino will face trial next month charged with manslaughter and abandoning his ship. Here’s a reminder of the consequences of his alleged actions in sailing the 3,780-passenger vessel too close to the island of Giglio. Sixteen months on, the capsized hull still lies in the sea, with engineers continuing the preparatory work needed to bring the hull upright so it can be towed away. The footage was shot by Team BlackSheep, using cameras mounted on radio-controlled helicopters. The guys were arrested by Italian police who want to prohibit unofficial photography of the ship.

    This footage is several months old and not “Concordia as she is today” as the funnel was removed from the ship in January of this year
