4th Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
Downed US Navy Plane

In 1973 a United States Navy DC plane ran out of fuel and crashed on the black beach in the South coast of Iceland. Everyone in that plane survived. It seems the pilot had simply switched over to the wrong fuel tank. The remains are still on the sand very close to the sea.
