Remains of the 1973 US Navy Douglas C-117D aircraft that crashed – due to severe icing – on 27 November 1972 in Sólheimasandur (Southern Region, Iceland). That military transport plane was flying from Hofn Hornafjördur Airport to Naval Air Station Keflavik. All seven crew members survived the crash.
Today, the Sólheimasandur plane wreck is a tourist attraction, featured in many music videos (Justin Bieber – I’ll Show You, Ada Szulc & DJ Adamus – Ocean, Dierks Bentley – Black, New Politics – Tonight You’re Perfect) and movies (Dilwale).
