On the 24th Novemeber 1973 a US Navy Douglas Super DC-3 crashed on Sólheimasandur black sand beach. Luckily everyone survived! If you're a Justin Bieber fan he skate boards on top of this plane in his video clip "I'll Show You". When I was in Iceland in January 2016 you could drive right up to the plane but now they have put fences up and you have to walk from the main road. It's quite deceptive how far away it is and takes approximately 45 minutes each way. I think it's about 4km. I wouldn't be surprised if the land owners soon start charging for entry.

Time Required: 2 hours
