August 20: MSC Flaminia and tugs latest known position was in 48.22N 020.21W at 18:00 UTC 18.8.12, and presumably, the convoy changed course heading now due East or NE at a speed of 5-6 knots. No news from NSB since August 15. There is one more mystery totally missed in official press-releases – some containers from MSC Flaminia went overboard and were reported as a floating hazard in Navigational Warnings. They may simply fell overboard, though some people assume they may be jettisoned for unknown reasons.
