  • Description

    IN NORTH VIETNAM, FACTORIES ARE MAKING SOUVENIRS AND HOUSEHOLD UTENSILS FROM THE MELTED-DOWN WRECKAGE OF AMERICAN AIRCRAFT SHOT DOWN OVER VIETNAM. THE NORTH VIETNAMESE GOVERNMENT CLAIMS THAT MORE THAN 1,700 AMERICAN AIRCRAFT HAVE BEEN SHOT DOWN DURING THE CONFLICT.
    AT THE TRUC SAN FACTORY, ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF HANOI, WRECKAGE OF SOME OF THESE AIRCRAFT IS BEING MELTED DOWN. THE SOUVENIRS, MODEL AIRCRAFT AND OTHER ITEMS, ARE SOLD TO TOURISTS, AND THE HOUSEHOLD GOODS, WHICH INCLUDE PANS, ARE SOLD TO THE LOCAL PEOPLE.
    THE TRUC SAN FACTORY USES HOME-MADE FURNACES AND EMPLOYS 170 PEOPLE. THE PRODUCTS THEY MAKE ARE PUT ON DISPLAY IN RESTAURANTS AND SMALL SHOPS IN HANOI, THE CAPITAL OF NORTH VIETNAM, AND ARE SOLD AT LOW PRICES.
