Long Bien Bridge. Hanoi, Vietnam.

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor Justhowes created this beautiful drone video of an important modern historical landmark in Vietnam.  The Long Bien Bridge crosses the Red River in Hanoi, connecting two of the capital city's districts.  Originally called the Paul Doumer Bridge, the 2.4 km (1.5 mi.) cantilever span was designed and built during the French Colonial era, opening in 1903.  Due to its strategic importance, the Long Bien Bridge was bombed repeatedly during the US Vietnam War, and repeatedly repaired.
