“Iceberg, right ahead!” Sailor Frederick Fleet made this terrifying announcement while working on the Titanic. And this signaled the beginning of the ship’s end – or, so we thought. That’s because Irish journalist Senan Molony has found evidence which suggests that the ship’s fatal flaw wasn’t its collision with the oceanic mass. Worse yet, the mistake may have been covered up since the ship’s infamous sinking.
The Titanic set sail from Southampton, England, on April 10, 1912. She then made a pair of stops in France and Ireland before traveling on toward New York City. But as we know, the vessel would never make it there. At 11:40 p.m. on April 14 the Titanic smashed into an iceberg – filling the ship’s supposedly unsinkable frame with water.
