Titanic’s beginning   Leave a comment

A few facts about the ship itself: Titanic was ordered on September, 17  1908
She was built by Harland & Wolff She was constructed on yard number 401 at Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Ireland
Her plans were finalized on March 31, 190…9
She was not christened (which some consider a bad omen)
She was first launched launched on May 31, 1911
Titanic was completed on March 31, 1912
The sea trials began at 6 a.m. on Monday, April 2, 1912
Her Radio Callsign was “MGY”
Her maiden voyage began on April 10, 1912 from Southhamptom, England
As the Titanic left on that day, her wake caused the nearby docked ship, the SS New York, to be pulled dangerously close. A tugboat had to come tow the SS New York away from Titanic. This near miss caused the Titanic’s departure to be delayed about 30 minutes.
