Huu Tiep Lake and the Downed B-52, Hanoi

3.7
See Huu Tiep Lake and the Downed B-52, which together create a bit odd war triumph. Small residential buildings surround the little lake where the wreckage of American aircraft emerges. In 1972, the air defence shot the aircraft, and one part of it fell in this lake. Look a bit closely around the greenish water, and you’ll notice the landing gear wheels. As the wreckage is for many years there, plants have started to grow around it.

  • Vietnam attractions take the signs are few and far between, so a little bit of the place had to find, because it is such a small alleyway. In fact, since the machine's part of the attraction is the interest is still there, where it fell. There is a text in the Vietnamese way, albeit a little flat event region's own particular style version of the event. But things can really recommend. Within walking distance of the City Centre (so if the likes of the walk to the attractions) and, in addition, there are other small lakes in the area.

  • Nečekaný objev mezi obytnými domy je B52 lake. Z ničeho nic se ocitnete u jezírka s fontánou, kde z vody trčí část trupu letadla a části podvozku. Opravdu velmi zajímavé. Rozhodně doporučuji při toulk...  more »
  • Took some searching, but we found the B52 in Huu Tiep Lake. Amazing laneway adventure to find it. Downed 45 years ago in Hanoi, it is now surrounded by beautiful flower markets (and Cafe B52 lol).  more »

  • Nice little gem and a little hidden away from the main roads. It's hard to see at night (it's not lit up) and therefore hard to appreciate. Try and catch it during daylight.
  • Historic place to visit a little off the well worn tourist paths
  • It's a lake with sections of a downed US Boeing B-52 Stratofortress in it. That pretty much sums it up. It is very interesting to see though; the juxtaposition of this war remnant outside an elementary school makes you think about a conflict that ended relatively recently. Also a short walk from the B-52 Victory Museum, so worth the trip if you're already in the area.
  • very nice but go to it difficunt.
  • Hidden spot with crashed b52 plan. Just a short stop but felt worth a wander around back streets to find (back streets themselves proved a nice walk).
