The remains of a Douglas R4D (Dakota DC-3 C 117) from the US navy.

I think it was in 1978 that the pilots of this Douglas R4D had to make a emergency landing
here on ash sandy Solheimasandur south of volcano Eyjafjallajokull ;-)

Thank you for your comment Jenny, no reason at all, probably too expensive to move it,
but photographers have enjoyed shooting this plane over the years ;-)

The old R4D was my first airplane ride; never forget it. Beautiful, happy crash landing and final resting place for an old friend.

Thanks Jim, and it's been a favorite for photographers here for years ;-)
