Boats Made from Aviation Fuel Tanks Left over from the Vietnam War

During the Vietnam War, the jets of the United States Air Force were equipped with expendable, external fuel tanks. When these metal-skinned tanks were used up, pilots dropped them where they were.

Vietnamese civilians put them to good use. Many of them were turned into boats and are even still in active service.
