Sólheimasandur Plane Wreck

Sólheimasandur Plane Wreck

Sólheimasandur, Iceland

This is a United States Navy DC plane that ran out of fuel and crashed on the southern coast of Iceland in 1973. Luckily everyone survived but the plane was left out near the beach and has now become a big tourist attraction - for those willing to trek out to it. It's a 4.5km walk from the main road (where there is now a parking lot where you can leave your car) and the long flat trek leads up to the plane just behind the dunes. Lots of fun and highly recommended.
