Huu Tiep Lake and the Downed B-52, Hanoi
(3.1/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Hanoi itinerary planner makes visiting Huu Tiep Lake and the Downed B-52 and other Hanoi attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • It was in place, such as through residential streets. B52 crash wreckage and impact was there. I thought location will let me reaffirm that there was a war.
