Titanic's Whistles

In 1993, a set of whistles from the ill-fated Titanic was brought to the surface after 81 years at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. They were restored and - in 1999 - blown for the first time since the grand ship's sinking in St. Paul, Minnesota. Compressed air was used instead of steam, due to concern that the whistles may be irreversibly damaged.

The following footage comes from the YouTube account of sanderroijk:
