Search youtube for Piero Landini`s channel, over 30 videos taken from various parts of the island using telephoto lens of work on and around the Costa Concordia over the last few months.  Recent ones  (2 days ago) show arrival of the barge carrying the parbuckle supports.

It won't be floating for a long time, well, it will never float on it's own again.


Today operation is to get the ship upright again and sitting on a big steel platform that has been built underneath it. It will still be very low in the water, I suspect the bows will be under still anyway.


Once it's upright and happily sitting there they can add more big tanks to the starboard side like the ones on the port side and once they are all in place the water can be pumped out of them allowing the ship to float and be towed to a scrap yard for cutting up. 


Been watching the operation all day at work on a live feed. Very slow going but compelling viewing. :-)
Wonder what will happen to things like furniture, deckchairs Etc. that are still on the upper decks, ebay perhaps...

BBC News at 1pm tuesday (17th Sep.2013)  shows crushed balconies on starboard side . A triumph for the engineers so far.   I cant wait to see Piero Landini`s YouTube videos when they come on, his previous ones have been superb. I think the  telegraph.co.uk  time lapse is a better one .

Congratulations to the engineers. Not even a Mary Rose moment! Engineering is so impressive when done well. I still don't quite see why the cables pulled the ship over rather than pulling the platform up - I suspect they had some fairly hairy Rawlplugs in the reef!

With a budget of half a billion quid you can get Rawlplugs any size ( or colour) you like O0   I dont think the chains and cables went through the frame, the final part of the rotation was by flooding the water boxes on the port side.

BBC - Costa Concordia trial: Captain's lover was on bridge

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-24735178

A Moldovan dancer who was on the bridge of the Costa Concordia with Captain Francesco Schettino has admitted she was his lover at his trial.

Domnica Cemortan testified that she was in a romantic relationship with the captain and was with him when the cruise ship ran aground off the north-west Italian coast.

Live stream video on www.giglionews.it for general views (3) but close-ups live streaming video as it happens try next post for German link.  I think it is afloat and being towed sideways at 1pm today.
