We fixed this big, nasty sumbitch. In this photo the rig is gone, melted into nothing, including the entire sub structure. The Kelly is still on the drill pipe, or it was until it parted downhole, and the rotary table is laying on top of the Hydrill. Its blowing past the closed pipe rams, past the Hydrill, and out both sides of the drilling spool below the pipe rams. On the left wing of the spool it was blowing hard enough to cut a ditch 4 feet deep and about 40 feet long that was full of very "warm" oil. I had a brain fart one morning and almost stepped off into it.
