Sólheimasandur Plane Wreck

On Nov 21, 1973, a DC-3 (R4D) belonging to the United States Navy ran out of fuel and crash-landed at Sólheimasandur in south Iceland. There were no fatalities. The remains of the fuselage are still lodged at the original crash site amid the black sand plains of Sólheimasandur, presenting a visual straight out of a science fiction movie.
