    Above all, it is good to know that it takes 45 minutes walk before accessing the famous wreck of the DC 3. Once on-site, the landscape is Lunar and this white carcass on the Black Beach with back plan glaciers is superb... but it is very complicated to be able to take a decent picture of the device because the device is taken over by tourists. It will take you to be patient and be resourceful to succeed the famous cliché. In short, work very long for a show that is not necessarily worth the detour!

He was forced to make a crash landing in November 1975, due to a breakdown, for lack of gasoline. Fortunately all its occupants were saved. What's left of the plane, the wings and tail. Looks like a movie scene with the remains of a plane in the middle of nowhere. Access is difficult because the owners of the areas adjacent to the site, banned the traffic of vehicles, to the preservation of the soil. We need to go a good distance. Worth the experience
