“"Many years ago, our company founder, Al Conklin, sold a new twin-engine business aircraft to a very successful entrepreneur. He had established a bit of a rapport with the individual and, after the sale, asked him straight out, 'How can you justify the cost of this airplane?' His reply? 'What is the cost of a divorce?'"–David Wyndham, president, Conklin & de Decker”
Where the ‘Unsinkable’ Titanic Sank
Looking for something unusual to do this summer? How about exploring the remains of the Titanic from an Mir submersible vehicle at 12,500 feet below sea level? Fifteen-day excursions will begin July 12, July 27 and August 6 and will include lectures and a ceremony to mark the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking. The per-person cost ($66,257 for submarine divers, $12,498 for non-submarine divers) also covers pre- and post-expedition tours in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and St. John’s, Newfoundland. For more information, contact Kensington Tours at (888) 903-2001.
Want to explore the Titanic without getting wet? Visit the renovated Harlan and Wolf Shipyards, a $100 million state-of-the-art attraction on the site in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where the “unsinkable” vessel was built and launched. Multimedia exhibits focus on the Titanic’s construction and sinking and a live video link lets you view the wreck on the ocean floor. Additional reasons to visit Northern Ireland include the Giant’s Causeway, a World Heritage Site; the charming Antrim Coast; historic castles and castle hotels; first-rate golf courses; and, of course, plenty of Guinness.
