To Never Depart Again

On Wednessday Nov 21st, 1973   the crew of a US Navy C47 skytrain, also known as Dakota, made a fuel miscalculation while underway to the US airforce base at Keflavik and was forced to make an emergency landing on Solheimasandur, Iceland. Never to leave again. Afterwards it was found that there was enough fuel onboard and the aircraft could have made it to its destination easily. To many photog’s travelling to Iceland it’s a magical place, and i can assure it really is. At 7.00 in the morning with no other sound then that of the freezing cold wind. Eerie  with a capital E !!
