A US Navy DC3 Cargo Wreck

US Navy DC3 -

On Sólheimasandur a black sand beach in Iceland lies the remains of a Douglas Super DC-3 cargo plane that crashed here in 1973. The cargo aircraft was abandoned and is now a tourist attraction.  Though not easy to get to, it is a great photo opportunity. It tail section, wings and engines are all gone and its interior stripped.

The wreck is most photographed from the side you first see it when approaching the beach but on this evening on August 14, last year the dramatic clouds made an exceptional backdrop for the opposite side of the plane.

I am so looking forward to going back this September for another great workshop.
