Re: About How Many People Perished In [SPOILERS]?
In earlier threads, given the angle of the ship hitting Alcatraz, I had it coming ashore somewhere on North Beach.
Assuming it was at about the speed of an airliner when it hit, with all its mass and momentum, it had to create catastrophic damage. Someone with more talent than me may be able to post a scale picture of the Vengeance onto a map of that area of San Francisco to get an idea of what kind of debris path it may have created.
Here you go:
At least tens of thousands had to have died.
My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
