b52 canoe, bin boun

The boat was made from the Gas tank of the B52 bombers. When the Americans bombed Laos (during the Vietnam war), they dropped the fuel tank around the village to save weight. The Villagers cut open the fuel tank and made them into canoes. They were water prove and apparently quite durable. .activity:B52 Boat
