Here we have documents relating to the H-2 radar and US Navy site in Iceland.
Message from Baldur J. Baldursson: "I would like to draw your attention to a landing mishap which is said to have occured in 1957 at Sauðanes airfiled in Langanes, near to H-2 radar site. Involved was a USAF C-47 aircraft carrying 27 passengers. According to the notes of the photographer, Tómas Jónsson, a main gear tire blew on landing which caused the tire to dig in to the ground and the aircraft to swing (groundloop). A catastrophe was narrowly avoided." Three photo links were included. Note: These photos have also been added to the H-2 Photo Gallery for 1956-1959.
