View 2 of ex-US Navy C-117D at Hnjótur, Örlygshöfn, Iceland
Iceland

The C-117D was a US Navy / US Marine Corps variant of the venerable C-47 (itself the military version of the classic DC-3 Dakota). This example was previously based at Keflavik, before being decommissioned and ending up at the museum at Hnjótur in Örlygshöfn. This eclectic museum was established by Kristinn Thor Egilsson to celebrate the local, maritime and aviation heritage of his family and the region. It houses a diverse and fascinating range of planes, vehicles and boats, and is situated in a dramatic landscape by the fjords, close to beaches and sea cliffs… a photographer's dream. [This is one of the panoramas from my June 2013 trip to Iceland. You can explore the other views of this incredible country here. https://www.360cities.net/sets/iceland-june-2013 ]

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
