Alabama resident John Wathen and pilot Tom Hutchins flew over the Gulf oil spill and got amateur video of the spill, which he says is worse than BP admits:
I'll never forget the scene... Nothing but a red mass of floating goo. It could've been prevented and should've been prevented... For the first time in my environmental career, I find myself using the word 'hopeless.' We can't stop this. There's no way to prevent this from hitting our shoreline... The Gulf appears to be bleeding...Also: How big is the BP/Deepwater Horizon spill?
