Costa Concordia cruise ship – an annotated graphic #2

In the wake of the Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster, the usual questions, facts and reported hearsay have emerged. Apparently, the captain was navigating by eye, not by the ship’s instruments, and was sailing close to the island as a salute to a former colleague. Most importantly, of course, a number of passengers died as a result of the vessel capsizing.

This graphic details the timeline from the Concordia departing port to it striking the island of Giglio and capsizing. Total elapsed time: three hours.
