Now generally known as B52 Lake, Huu Tiep is a tranquil, sleepy backwater. It’s a small lake, surrounded by traditional, French colonial houses and well worth a visit, as it really brings home the reality of war. The water is still and calm now, but...More

Hard to believe that wreckage of a downed aircraft has been left in a lake all these years, but it has! Definitely worth checking out! A great symbol of Vietnam’s victory in the war! Quite surreal as it’s amongst local housing and you have to...More

We visited this on the last day in Hanoi. I had looked for it earlier and failed to find it. I could be wrong but I thought previously the tail section was pointing out. In any case it was actually a very peaceful area (...More

I have visited Huu Tiep Lake three times recently. In the back of the lake is the remnants of a downed American B 52 bomber which is also a remnant of the US war in Vietnam. There is a plaque in front of the lake...More

We finally got to see the wreckage and the monument. It is only a short distance from the Mausoleum. The setting is a lovely residential area, with the wreckage in a small lake surrounded by houses and gardens. Well worth the short trek for nostalgic...More

I am not sure this is worth going out of your way to see, I guess its significant, but it is out of context. Setting is nice, its a quiet back water area of town. Nice café there

We walked from our hotel to this site... It's very sombering to see pieces of American aircraft and knowing that the crew probably perished after it was shot down. Don't expect a lot as its pieces of an airplane in a small pond but if...More

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 toulkách městem, navíc tato čtvrť je velmi hezká. An unexpected discovery among...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).

This is an interesting stop, but it’s kind of in the middle of nowhere and is a bit hard to find. The lake is very small and pretty dirty looking in the middle of a residential area. The remains of the plane are visible, but...More
