MAYDAY…MAYDAY…

I imagine that’s what was heard over the radio on the saturday of november 24 in 1973. A United states C-47 Skytrain was forced to attempt an emergency landing on Solheimasandur’s black sandy beach in the south of Iceland. The crew survived the crash, and the wreck still lays in the exact spot where it hit the earth almost 40 years ago. Since then it became a landmark in Iceland and a great photo opportunity for those who are able to find it. Putting these coördinates in your GPS might help: 63.459523, -19.364618. My picture was taken with a Nikon D2X and a Sigma 14mm 2,8 lens on a tripod with a long exposure. Happy hunting!
