At time of building, Titanic was the biggest moving object ever build. She was not only biggest but also backed with superior quality and performance. Titanic was the property of Whitestar corporation, based in Britain.
April 14, 1912, 11:40 PM - The crow's nest bell suddenly
rings three times followed by the ringing of the crow's nest telephone on the
bridge. The telephone is answered by Sixth Officer Moody, who hears Lookout
Fredrick Fleet's urgent warning, "Iceberg, right ahead!" First
Officer Murdoch, on watch on the bridge orders the engines stopped and then
full astern and also orders the helmsman, Quartermaster Hitchens, to turn the
helm hard astarboard.
For 37 seconds they waited. When it seemed as though they would strike the berg head-on, the ship finally started to turn to port (left), but it was too late. A spur of ice, hidden beneath the surface, bumped and scraped the starboard (right) side of the ship for a distance of 248 feet. This caused, not a continuous gash as once suspected, but a series of smaller holes and buckled hull plates that affected the first four compartments and two feet into the fifth. The total area now open to the sea was a mere twelve square feet.
Over a Meter Long.
