During the Vietnam War the US left a lot of the fighter jet fuel tanks behind. During the war fighter jets could constantly fly all over Vietnam and the tactical jet planes relied on JP-8 fuel. This fuel was strapped on to the jet in external containers and when they would run out of fuel they would just drop them to lighten the weight of the plane.

The large fuel tanks were dumped onto the countryside by USAF jets so that they could maneuver better, protecting the pilots

Those fuel tanks scattered throughout the country were eventually recovered and repurposed

The citizens of Vietnam transformed them into makeshift canoes

To our surprise, they seem to be perfectly suited for water travel

Realy? How odd? You say that sealed cylindrical areodynamic container can be remodeled into a boat? I say impossibiru.

Kiss my ass if any of those tanks got dropped off an F-4 going 200-400MPH 1,000 to 5,000 feet in the air and landed in any condition like those in the pictures. More likely they're surplus tanks left abandoned at airbases.
