This isn't somewhere you can spend hours on end, really no more than about 10-15 minutes. It's tucked away where not many tourists go down an alley from a main road. If you're daring, find it yourself on foot, tho a taxi can easily take you there for a cheap price.
This isn't mentioned in most guide books like Lonely Planet, I only found out about it courtesy of Top Gear in the UK! However, when I was planning my trip to Vietnam I had to see this for real. It's strange to see part of a huge B-52 laid in state in this lake (most of the lake has been reclaimed for housing around it). It serves as a permanent reminder for Hanoi-ans particularly of their efforts against the USA, for us in the west it's quite eerie and is also a reminder that a significant war took place in this country and not too long ago either.
The rest of the plane is located at the B-52 museum not far away. Also there is a part of it at the War Remnants Museum in Saigon.
