March 1945: the American B-24 bomber with a Crew of 8 crashed while returning from its mission.
The site was inaccessible, and the accident remained unnoticed for several months.
During the following summer, the remains of the soldiers were buried on site, a few years later then taken back to US.
Out of the 18 tons wreckage, today only a few hundred Kg are left to be found, scattered on a wide area.
My thoughts went to the brave and fine soldiers, whose sacrifice enabled our home to be free.
This hike we did on the Slovenian Independence day.
Good that this place is off all beaten paths.
Bad that someone left modern trash there (danish beer cans and Thai canned food), which we collected and took down to the .
