  • Although it’s quite a walk to get to the crash site, if you’re up for a long walk, it’s definitely worth making the stop to see it. Great photo opps and nice walk to see a bit of history from when...

  • We visited the wreck as part of a quad bike tour. We stopped off and had plenty of time for photos. Not a lot left of the plane!

  • Beautiful, especially during the night. Be careful with walking during the night, it is a long walk (about 3-4 km) and even though it is "just" a flat, black desert you can get lost easily. Take enough lamps and batteries with you, warm clothing and some water. If you are lucky there can even be a party, which is extremely cool. You can get on a bus and it will take you to the airplane and then back to the parking lot, but I don't know how much is or how can you get on them. All in all, cool place, worth a visit, but choose the weather window well.
  • One of the best things I think I've done, the walk to the plane isn't particularly arduous and can be completed in under an hour even whilst taking photos along the way. The plane its self is a great photo opportunity. I thoroughly enjoyed the solitude whilst walking across an almost alien landscape.
