Australian tycoon floats plans for Titanic II

Replica of legendary ship scheduled to re-create fateful voyage from Belfast to New York in mid-2016.

An Australian billionaire who is planning to build a replica of the Titanic has been revealing more details about the project in London.

Exactly 101 years after the “unsinkable” ship sank in a fateful accident in the Atlantic, the Titanic II will be rebuilt to almost identical specifications.

It is scheduled to set sail in mid-2016 from Belfast to New York, seeking to complete the journey its predecessor never managed to complete.
