Sinking of the SS „Flying Enterprise“ (January 10, 1952)

The world got to see a real thriller unfolded before their eyes at the turn of the year 1951/52, when the ship "Flying Enterprise" faced distress at sea. Carrying 1,300 tons of pig iron, 900 tons of coffee and 10 passengers, the freighter had left Hamburg for New York on December 21 and was caught in a severe hurricane about 400 nautical miles west of the British Isles. After a break in the rudder spindle the cargo shifted, putting the ship in a dangerously inclined position. Attempts by the crew to install an emergency rudder failed, so that on December 28 the engine was stopped and a distress call was issued. Several ships came to the aid of the "Flying Enterprise," but it was only when the severity of storm subsided somewhat four days later, that were they able to bring the castaways to safety. Captain Kurt Carlsen remained on board to wait for the ocean-going tug „Turmoil“, which arrived on January 3, to rescue his ship, which by now listed 60-degrees to port.

The 37-year-old Dane refused to give up, despite repeated failures to attach a tow in still stormy seas. With the help of a volunteer from the "Turmoil", the manoeuvre finally worked and the towed convoy set a hopeful course for the emergency port of Falmouth in Cornwall. However, five days later- and only about 40 nautical miles from the destination - the hawser broke and the "Flying Enterprise" made leeway. After unsuccessful efforts to establish a new towing connection and with a list of now 90 degrees, the captain finally had to admit defeat and leave the ship with his helper in the afternoon of January 10. He watched from the deck of the "Turmoil" as the freighter sank before his eyes a short time later.

Newspapers, radio stations and newsreels all around the world reported about these events at sea and the bravery of Carlson, who was considered a hero. On his arrival in England Carlson was greeted with a pageant. A few days later he was awarded the Silver Medal for Meritorious Service by the insurance company Lloyd's of London. Last but not least, he was honoured with a ticker tape parade in New York City.
