Interesting facts about this location

Widerøe Flight 839

Widerøe Flight 839, also known as the Værøy Accident, was a crash into water of a de Havilland Canada DHC-6-300 Twin Otter just after take-off from Værøy Airport in Norway. The incident occurred on 12 April 1990 at 14:44, and killed all five people on board. The cause of the accident were strong winds that exceeded the structure's tolerance, causing the tail rudder and tailplane to crack so the plane became uncontrollable. Impact occurred 63 seconds after take-off and 8 seconds after the crack.

Mosken is a small uninhabited rocky island in the municipality of Værøy in Nordland county, Norway. The 1.5-square-kilometre island is located in the Lofoten archipelago about halfway between the islands of Værøy to the south and Moskenesøy to the north. The Moskenstraumen maelstrom—one of the most powerful in the world—is located on the north side of Mosken. Historically, the island was used for grazing sheep in both the summer and the winter.

A maelstrom is a very powerful whirlpool; a large, swirling body of water. A free vortex, it has considerable downdraft. The power of tidal whirlpools tends to be exaggerated by laymen. There are virtually no stories of large ships ever being sucked into a maelstrom, although smaller craft are in danger and tsunami-generated maelstroms may even threaten larger craft. Tales like those by Paul the Deacon, Jules Verne and Edgar Allan Poe are entirely fictional.

The Moskstraumen or Moskenstraumen is a system of tidal eddies and whirlpools, one of the strongest in the world, that forms at the Lofoten archipelago, Norway, in the Norwegian Sea. It is located between the Lofoten Point of Moskenesøya and Værøy, at the small island of Mosken. Moskstraumen is unusual in that it occurs in the open sea whereas most other whirlpools are observed in confined straits or rivers.
