Description:
On December 3, 1992, the double-bottom Greek-flagged tanker Aegean Sea, en route to Repsol refinery in A Coruña, Spain, suffered an accident off the Galician coast. It had successfully passed all required tests and revisions.

When the ship was going to enter the docks of A Coruña, the wind speed was above , and visibility was under . This made it lose its assigned route and wreck. The ship broke off and exploded under the Tower of Hercules, causing tall flames and spilling more than 70,000 tons of oil into the ocean.

Trophies

The two anchors of the Aegean Sea were recovered; one can be found in the public gardens near Finisterre and the other in the Museum Philippe Cousteau at Salinas (Asturias).
