Vietnam war remnants

Hello :smile:

Recently, I spent two weeks in Vietnam, beside the fabulous landscape I also visited several museums including the B-52 Victory Museum and the Vietnam Military History Museum in Hanoï as well as the War Remnants Museum and the Independence Palace in Saïgon.
Here the result.

Nice shots Simon, the War Remnants Museum is certainly a very sobering place.

Thanks for sharing, brings back some fond memories of a wonderful country.

Looks like the Vietnamese Government used Egyptian sub-contractors on some of these :whistle:
