MICHELANGELO: 1965 - 5 storm photos from 1966 disaster

Product Description

Italian Line -  A montage of five photos showing the massive wave that it the MICHELANGELO on 12 April 1966, and its aftermath. 

In Force 11 seas the liner was clawing its way towards New York.  Most passengers were hunkered down in public rooms.  Despite warnings, several people were in their bow-facing cabins when the rogue wave hit.  So strong was the blast that bridge windows were shattered and a large hole was punched into the aluminum superstructure beneath.  A passenger viewing the storm from his cabin and another on the deck below trying to take a nap were killed, as was a crew member who was smashed against a bulkhead.  Dozens were injured, some seriously. 

The top four 8” by 11” photographs show the wave crashing into the MICHELANGELO.  The bottom photo was taken looking out through a wrecked cabin at the stormy seas.  The Italian caption reads, “A bad adventure in the Atlantic.  April 12, 1966 at 10:20, in navigation with sea force 11,  the MICHELANGELO is hit by an anomalous wave (an arrhythmic wave that surprised the ship unprepared for the impact).  The photographic sequence shown here was taken a few moments before.  The last photo shows the damage suffered by the m/n.” 

The photos are laminated together, creating an 11” by 41” display.
