Recording the best haunting sounding wind & rain effects inside the abandoned DC3 airplane in Iceland!
While traveling around our Cozy Campers camper van in Iceland recording sounds, we came across the abandoned DC3 airplane at Sólheimasandur Beach.
In 1973 the US Navy DC-3 or C-117D crashed landed at this desolated location and the plane was left behind. After several decades, it’s became not only a famous destination for tourists, photographers, and video makers, but it’s also an incredible location for sound recording (however not many people realize that.)
Before arriving to the site, I knew about the harsh weather conditions in the open field and prepared myself to be greeted with strong wind, rain, and the cold.
The weather changed every minute and I’ve never experienced something like it before. Every time the weather condition shifted, the soundscape did the same and this made this sound library so special and unique.
About The Sounds
I recorded wind at several different location inside and outside the aircraft. The decaying plane created a wind tunnel and with open windows and loose plates all over it created a haunting sounding. When the rain started it produced a new layer of sounds.
Using LOM Geofone & Contact Microphone: I could finally use the new LOM Geofone and it was a blast! Because of the harsh conditions, the plane is always moving and with this microphone I could record a very low frequency which made it perfect for sound design or music productions.
Getting to the DC-3 plane site
The easiest way to find the parking spot is searching on Google Maps for “Parking for Sólheimasandur Plane Wreck.”
