The Titanic sank on April 14, 1912 – Or did it?
The documentary Titanic: The Shocking Truth talks about how the most famous ship of the world did not sink, but in fact had a grand career taking passengers back and forth across the Atlantic Ocean.
The Olympic had been badly damaged from a collision with a warship and was beyond repair. In order to save the White Star Line from ruin, Ismay and Pirrie came up with the idea to swap the Olympic.
The alleged facade of the Titanic being dressed to look like the Olympic would have to last right up until her last voyage -but also, quite importantly, not be exposed when the ship was completely dismantled. In October 1935 she was taken to Jarrow, a town in north-east England, located on the River Tyne, that at the time was suffering from the depression, to be dismantled.
Titanic’s wheelhouse was flat at the front and the Olympics curved. Olympic’s B deck had a 1st class promenade, whereas Titanic had private verandas and suites. Indeed many passengers were booked into the suites, an impossibility if the ship was really the Olympic. Loss of reputation.
