Today, 14 April 2012 around 11:40 pm it would be 100 years ago that Titanic collided with an iceberg, and sank in the night of 15 April 1912.
During Titanic’s sinking, the Olympic picked up her distress signal. But Olympic was too far away from her sinking sister, and it would take twelve hours before Olympic would reach her sinking sister. Carpathia was closer to Titanic’s sinking.. but Carpathia would also reach Titanic four hours later. Slowly Titanic breaks into two pieces, while the last piece of the stern vanish for ever beneath the waves of the cold North-Atlantic ocean.

Titanic dressed up for "Good Friday"
Today, hundred years ago, Titanic was dressed up for Good Friday in Southampton on 5 April 1912. But back in New York, Olympic was preparing to leave New York on 10 April 1912. The same day as Titanic.
This would be the first and last time that Titanic carried all flags of the world on the lines of the masts.

This is the model of Olympic I made, to re-create her sea trials in May 1911. Two days later, on 31 May 1911 she was handed over to the White Star Line. On the same day when Titanic was launched in Belfast.

Next year, it will be hundred years ago that the mighty and legendary Titanic vanished for ever in the ocean on a depth of two miles.
Replica Olympic in 2012
Many channels on television are planning to broadcast live the wreck of Titanic. They will also tell the story and secrets about the ship, on some channels. Will Olympic’s story also be told? Or the Olympic III story?
At the moment, there hasn’t been any news about Olympic III. But I can recommend something: Tell your friends about Olympic III, let them sign the petition it’s free to sign.
There is also one thing I would like to tell. Rebuilding the Olympic shows how much respect we have for the workers who built the previous lovely liner Olympic.
