Fighter Jet Fuel Tanks Were Dumped On Vietnam Farmers 40 Years Ago

funny war side effects

During a war, more than just the politician soldiers are affected
By the fighting. Take these farmers in South Vietnam, for example.
During the Vietnam War, fighter jets would be constantly flying over
The countryside, Military tactical jet planes rely on the JP-8 fuel
That’s loaded into external fuel tanks, but once that fuel is used they
Are jettisoned to reduce overall weight of the plane
Hopefully none of the empty tanks were dumped onto the countryside by USAF jets so that they could maneuver better, protecting the pilots
Those fuel talks scattered through the
Country were eventually recovered and
Repurposed
The citizens of Vietnam transformed them
Into makeshift canoes
To our surprise, they seem to be a perfectly
Suited of water travel
Luckily these citizens were able to use the cast-off fuel takes once
The Vietnam war was over and they weren’t just lettering their
Country side
