The WWII plane wreck in the outskirts of Oslo

Urban exploring at Hansakollen Hill just outside Oslo.

World War II. On July 2, 1942, a German Dornier DO17 plane crashed at the mountainside of Hanskakollen hill just outside of Oslo. Most probable cause, bad weather. All three German soldiers on board were killed and the remains of the aircraft spread out.

The wreck is still well kept. DO17 was a very common bomber during Hitler-Germany's offensive in Europe and the Luftwaffe had more than 500 machines when the war broke out in 1939. Since then, these aircraft were quickly replaced with better models. It’s believed that this plane was used as a courier plane between the old Oslo airport Fornebu and the military airport at Gardermoen. Coordinates: Wreck: 60 02' 39.33" - 10 47' 33.16
Engine: 60 02' 24.07' - 10 47' 33.39
