Cutty Sark burned

Discussion in 'Transportation' started by Luckynp, May 21, 2007.

  1. Awful news today. The Cutty Sark (I think the only remaining example of an 'extreme' tea clipper in the world) has suffered extensive fire damage this morning.

    I have just a few pics of her taken a couple of years ago with the D70.

  2. What a shame Mike, however like the Phoenix I am sure she will rise.
    Nice image of yours too!
     
  3. Oh that is sad! We got to see her (sort of) in January while visiting.......but she was already hidden by the reconstruction efforts. Hopefully they can repair her!

    The good news is that over two thirds of her were removed for renovating so survived the fire. So sails, masts and some cabins are ok.
    The bad news is they are not sure if the metal carcase has been warped beond repair by the heat.
