Parks Canada releases dramatic footage of wreckage of doomed Franklin expedition ships

The Canadian government has released incredible images of the shipwreck of HMS Terror, the Royal Navy warship that was part of a doomed 1845 Arctic mission to locate the Northwest Passage.

HMS Terror and HMS Erebus took part in an expedition led by Sir John Franklin to find the long-sought sea route. Both ships’ crews perished in mission and the ships' final resting places remained a mystery for over 160 years.
