In 1973, the US Navy airplane - a Douglas Super DC-3 - crash landed on Sólheimasandur beach in Iceland after what was later found to be a pilot's error. The crew all survived the impact, but the plane was abandoned rather than recovered - and lies there still in the middle of the black desert that surrounds it.


Thank you all for viewing and commenting and I hope you continue to enjoy my perspective of Iceland :-)
