Early morning on the June, 17 (Iceland's Independents day) we set off to visit 3 crash sites on Mt. Fagradalsfjall. With me where Mr. Árnason director of Keilir Institute of Technology, Mr. Arnbjörnsson director of GeoCamp and The Icelandic College of Fisheries and Mr. Guðmundsson a Computer Specialist. All keen outdoorsmen and history buffs.
The plan was to visit the three crash sites on Mt. Fagradalsfjall from WWII. Kast where the B-24 Liberator Hot Stuff crashed with Lt. Gen. Andrews and his entourage on May 3. 1943. Langhóll where a Short Sunderland flying boat crashed on April 24, 1941, and Langahrygg where a Matin Mariner flying boat crashed on November 2, 1941.
The circle we walked is about 16 km. and took us about 5 hours. The weather was quite good and we had a good day on the mountain. Mr. Árnason found a small piece of cloth buried in the ground by the crash site of the Martin Mariner , he took it with him and will have a technician at the Keilir Institute to have a look at it.
