The crashed spaceship of Coober Pedy

In 2000 a film called Pitch Black was filmed here in Australia. It was filmed near the remote outback town of Coober Pedy. A town well known for amazing opals and it’s underground town. The space ship is the set used for the external shots of the crashed transporter. After filming wrapped up it was left for locals to claim and today sits in the yard of the Opal Cave Shop in Coober Pedy gathering dust.
