Here is a photo of the rig before the disaster :
The helipad is to the left.
If I had the mind to shoot a laser at this rig in an attempt to destroy it , I think I would have come a little CLOSER to hitting my mark . The
bunkhouse and storage was under the helipad , from what I remember .
Looks to me like if it was a laser , it would have been directed to some other part of the rig that would have ensured a better chance of destruction
, like say , the derrick itself , or the ballast tanks ?
Most likely , operating fluids (oil , grease , etc.) were stored beneath the heli , as well as generators and fuel tanks , etc .
