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.

  • Sights are just a small lake with little piece of wreck in the middle. There is a brief guide and not much to impress visitors. In General if you should make time to admit.

  • 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).
