Day 5 in Iceland
Finding the Wreck
When I decided to go to Iceland, this was the part I was looking forward to most! There is a US Naval plane that crashed on an Icelandic beach near Vik in the 1970′s, and it is now an abandoned wreck. It is really hard to find, and most people don’t even know it’s there. We tried asking a few passersby for directions, and no one knew what we were talking about. A couple hours after we started looking, however, we finally found it.
No one was harmed when the plane made its crash landing onto the beach, but it has remained on the shore where it landed for almost 50 years.
