It is no wonder though that it crashed on an aircraft – as shown by this picture. It is unclear if the pilot survived. This aircraft is known for its unique whistling sound thus earning the label of “Whistling Death” mainly due to the sound of its engine.

The Final Picture of the Titanic
This picture is said to be the final image taken of the tragic ship, the Titanic before it sunk in the depths of the cold ocean floor in 1912. The RMS Titanic hit an iceberg while it was sailing to the United States. Many oceanic research organizations have since attempted to discover the ship’s remnants.
Thanks to the cold temperature of the Atlantic Ocean’s floor, most of the RMS Titanic’s parts are still elegantly preserved and are still being studied.
