The Russians have landed !!!...
22 January 2012 | Petit Tabac, Tobago Cays
And they've landed in the Tobago Cays, of all places .... There we were strolling along the beach on the deserted beautiful island of Petit Tabac - now known localling as Jack Sparrow Island - when we came across this large piece of space junk, neatly tied up to two palm trees... After a bit of googling, it seems that this Russian rocket casing came to Earth in mid December 2011 and washed up on Petit Tabac. A closer look at the fuselage revealed Russian writing, an amazing metal honeycomb lining and a load of wiring. We were very privileged to have this tiny island to ourselves as we walked up and down the pristine white sand beach. We spotted a young nurse shark cruising through the shallows, whilst the pelicans dived for their lunch nearby.
