Australian tycoon plans new Titanic

- +

Flamboyant Australian tycoon Clive Palmer unveiled his plan Tuesday for building a perfect replica of the Titanic -- plus a lot of extra lifeboats. 

Australian mining tycoon Clive Palmer unveils plans for a "Titanic II" cruise ship at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum on February 26, 2013 in New York City. Palmer said Titanic II would sail on her maiden passenger voyage from Southampton to New York in late 2016.
