    So that would be a barge into bridge.

    I am worried about the rest of the bridge. I seems the barge is undamaged which lead me me to think that bridge wasn't that well built.

    Looks like he shot the wrong span. Well, now they've got a new fishing pier in LBTL.
    I just can't help thinking there's a bait shop on the wrong side of the bridge. It's been that kind of a week.

    Not a barge, that's an ocean going ship. It is the M/V Delta Mariner (IMO 9198501) , a NASA/USAF Detla rocket booster carrier.

    Looks as though they were lucky not to die in that.

    Should have fired the rocket booster and gone over the top? - - I know my air draft with the radio antenna folded down (4.5M :D :D :eek: )... - - Someone who was in charge, did not, and now probably will soon not be in charge of more than a bathtub on dry land...

    Um, not sure what you mean, but the aft "trim" is due to the weight of the concrete bridge decking rather than flooding.

    What is the correct term for the fore and aft equivalent of heel or list, anyway?
