|An unseen wreck on the web: This is the bridge of the tanker that exploded at San Roque Refinery (Spain), on 26/05/1985. I was less than two miles far from the disaster when this happened at 11:10 a.m., local time.
Another tanker, moored aside on the same finger (the spanish registered "CAMPONAVIA") suffered a secondary explosion and sunk, due to the huge blast from the korean ship.
Some data of the korean-built tanker:
BUILT: 1982 (KOREAN SHIPBUILDING ENG. CORP.)
I took this photo on summer, 1985.
