Oil Spill - What is not reported

A screen shot from the video.

I'll bet this video has scenes you did not even know existed in the Gulf of Mexico.  Watching it, I kept wondering when the plane would be ordered out of the air space over the British Petroleum operations area.  The video was taken last week, June 21, from a private airplane flight over the gulf.  It is almost 10 minutes long, but you can quit anytime you get nauseated.
