On 8 September 1941, a 4 B17c bomber flew from England for bombing missions against German ships in Oslo. Unfortunately, one of the aircraft was attacked by two German fighters, and crashed in Songedalslia on the west side of Byglandsfjorden. All the crew perished and are now buried in Bygland cemetery. You can see the wreckage from the plane around Mele kraftstasjo, a trip that takes about 2 to 4 hours. The tour goes through beautiful Norwegian terrain and not far from the wreckage, there is a beautiful view from the mountainside.
