Exhibition highlights Government’s 70-year development

Ha Nam, August 18 (VNA)- Nearly 150 documents, objects and photos which reflect the foundation, development and operation of the State over the last seven decades are being displayed at an exhibition that opened in the northern province of Ha Nam on August 18.

The exhibition is part of activities to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the August Revolution (August 19) and National Day (September 2), offering young people a chance to gain insight into the revolutionary tradition and glorious history of the country.

The eight-day exhibition also helps visitors understand the revolutionary activities of a number of revolutionary leaders who were detained in prisons under the colonial regime.

On the occasion, military aircrafts MIG-21 and SU-22M, key warplanes of Vietnam’s Air Force are introduced to the public at the provincial museum.

MIG-21 was an effective weapon during the national resistance war against the US as it was capable of shooting down B52 aircraft, which were considered a flying fortress.

Meanwhile, SU-22M was Vietnam’s first jet fighter that implemented patrol activities over the Truong Sa Archipelago in 1988. It significantly contributed to safeguarding the nation’s airspace and territorial waters.

The two exhibits were handed over to the provincial museum by the Air Defence-Air Force Service.
