Wrecked F-4 Phantom Fighter, Hanoi

(Image: DANYSTYLE, reproduced with permission)

This wrecked McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom was shot down on May 14, 1967 during the Vietnam War, and now occupies pride of place – along with other American wreckage – outside the People’s Air Force Museum in Hanoi.  Also featured on our sibling site Storm Climb, the mangled jet, build number 153001, was hit by a Russian-built surface to air missile (SAM). And while you wouldn’t exactly call it intact, the robust Phantom is still recognisable despite the force of the blast it clearly sustained.
