Abandoned US DC-3 Airplane eerie wreckage in Iceland.

On Nov 24 1973, the US Navy airplane – a Douglas Super DC-3 – was forced to crash land on Sólheimasandur beach.

The crew all survived the impact, but the plane was abandoned rather than recovered – and lies there still.

All that’s left is the plane’s fuselage amid rumors a local farmer stole the tail to mysteriously sell it on.
