October 11, 2012, photographer Jeffrey Dubinsky took a flight for LEAN and LMRK over the Bayou Corne sinkhole. After the flight, which was generously provided by Southwings, Jeffrey commented on the intense petroleum fumes experienced while flying over the sinkhole area. "I will say the odor was the heaviest and strongest I have ever experienced in all my time in Louisiana. Perhaps even worse still was that the odor was hovering directly over the community... I have no idea whatsoever how the workers can tolerate being anywhere near it."
