Back in the car for a 20km drive to what is most likely one of the most visited areas on the South Coast. The epic plane wreck, In 1973 a United States Navy DC Dakota ran out of fuel and crashed on the black beach at Sólheimasandur. Fortunately, everyone in that plane survived.
A 4 mile one-way walk to the plane was refreshing and almost never-ending. The land is black, littered with pebbles, rocks and small boulders and would make great movie set.
There were more people around than anticipated and some to the angst of many, climbed up on the fuselage and “posed” for photos without consideration of the many wanting to take the shot.
