Ah Yes, the NORMANDIE situation.
This belongs on an Ocean Liner Enthusiasts forum, but in context, the story will be repeated here.
After HOURS of burning and very slowly beginning to capsize, It became obvious that the ship would capsize completely.
The news media was documenting the situation very thoroughly, until the ship reached a list of about 30 degrees. When it became obvious that the ship would capsize COMPLETELY, the news photographers were herded out of the area.
THUS, we lost photo documentation of NORMANDIE's final plunge, however, she sat there for another two years, COMPLETELY capsized, and many photographs of that siituation existed.
With hindsight (which can be 20/20) It seems like the ultimate act of senseless censorship. Perhaps they thought taht after the capsize, the ship could be "righted" in a few hours and then everything would be alright ! LOL
