Indiana Jones Wiki

Noah's Ark was, according to Abrahamic religions, a large vessel built at God's command to save Noah, his family, and a core stock of the world's animals from the Great Flood. According to most tradition, as the waters of the flood receded, the ark landed on Mount Ararat, modern day Turkey. The story is told in chapters 6-9 of the book of Genesis, with later variations in the Qur'an and a number of other sources.

In 1927, Indiana Jones, Jack Shannon, Vladimir Zobolotsky and his daughter Katrina sought the Ark on Mount Ararat.[2][1]

They eventually found it half-buried in a glacier. After Jones' party climbed inside it for shelter, a series of gunshots fired outside caused an avalanche which sent the Ark sliding down the mountainside.[1]

Coming to a rest, the Ark was buried under an ocean of snow, once more hidden from the world.[1]

Nine years later, while he had known about the fate of Noah's Ark, Indy sarcastically told to Reeko that he would pay him five hundred dollars if he had Noah's Ark, the Holy Grail and Atlantis "wrapped up in one".[3]
