B-52 Strat fortress was shot down during the first evening of Operation Linebacker II, 18 December 1972, and Vietnam has erected a museum very near the crash site — the Ba Đình neighborhood of Hanoi (Hà Ni) — and it is named the Museum of Victory over B-52 (Bảo Tàng Chiến Thắng B.52). The B-52 wreckage has been removed from the pond formerly named Huu Tiep Lake but is now called B-52 Lake (May Bay B52). There is more at the museum, as well, with descriptions and displays of the aerial combat that has occurred in Vietnam’s History
