Here are a couple of pics taken by an underwater welder friend. These are the only ones I have seen of the rig actually burning big time before it sank. I think the only reason these were available, is he was working close by when it blew.

Frightening! during world war two oil tankers would burn like that from a torpedo attack.

Wow. The second and third ones look like frame-grabs from a Star Wars episode.

Thanks for posting those.

Really awesome pictures. I really thought that the Whale Shark picture was neat. I wasn't aware that there were Whale Sharks in the Gulf. When pictures like this are published it helps prove the range of some species
Thanks
