I was driving around Iceland, and just stoping to see the sighs.
After a cool waterfall (foss ) I saw a parking lot full of cars and no sign of what was going on, but there was no parking fee, so I said what the heck, looks like a black sand beach. After 4 km ( 2.5 miles) I found this.
Yes it was cold and windy ,
On Saturday Nov 24, 1973, a United States Navy Douglas Super DC-3 airplane was forced to land on Sólheimasandur’s black sand beach in the south of Iceland after experiencing some severe icing.
