Titanic Whistles sounded in St. Paul

Saturday February 20, 1999, 4:05pm local time

After nearly 80 years under the surface of the Atlantic ocean, the whistles of the great ship RMS Titanic sounded once again.  This time, their sound was heard in the streets of St. Paul, Minnesota and not over any great body of water.
I, along with an estimated 80,000 other people, was on hand with my Sony Handycam to hear it.  The whistles were not painfully loud as predicted.  They were full and pleasant sounding.  You can also hear the whistle blasts right here on this site.  Just download the sound by clicking on the animated icon below.
