In Hong Kong, more than a day can not defuse the bomb during the Second World War

50
Sappers in Chinese Hong Kong have been trying for more than a day to find the best way to neutralize the American bomb found during the construction of the metro during World War II, reports RIA News Post by South China Morning Post.




According to the publication, "an unexploded bomb, 140 centimeters long, 45 centimeters in diameter and 450 kilograms weighing, was found on Saturday morning at a depth of 15 meters underground by workers involved in the construction of the subway in Wan Chai."

Sappers have been working there for more than a day, the place is cordoned off by police and firefighters.

According to media reports, to ensure the safety of city residents, “law enforcement officers cleared and cordoned off the area with a radius of 400 meters around the projectile, on the eve of thousands of people were evacuated from nearby houses and offices, and several large streets were suspended on Sunday Wan Chai Station.

The sappers managed to determine that the ammunition found was the ANM-65 bomb dropped on Hong Kong by an American bomber between the 1941 and 1945 years. The bomb contains about 250 kg of explosives. The sappers planned to defuse the bomb by midnight (Saturday 19.00 Moscow time), but for unknown reasons, the disposal of the ammunition was postponed. When to complete the work, is currently not known.

This is not the first bomb found in Hong Kong - in January 2017-th also on the construction site was found 220-kg American ammunition.

        Apparently they want to defuse them on the spot, because it is dangerous to take them out with the fuse, but the fuse is rusted and cannot be removed, there remains the option of detonation in place, and this is a long story, it’s necessary to build some kind of armored-concrete cap over the bomb, but that’s not will cost one or two days.

          In fact, they do the boning, and so the cap will fly in parts in all directions. laughing We had "Hochma." On take-off in an airplane, the Fab-500 fell off the Mi-8 pylon, crawled through the concrete and buried its nose in the ground. Of course, with a fuse. Our big-headed people thought that it was almost necessary to fill the Cheops pyramid. We had a beginning. PPR, dashing captain (I will not mention my last name). He took a spatula, dug his nose and twisted the fuse. I received and burst a three-liter can of alcohol from the commander’s shoulder ... These were the men.

        And not just sappers, but representatives from the US diplomatic mission to be constantly present there! And then it will become from them, scatter away and explode as is!

          Alas. You can not do it this way. So far, there are two options - on-site detonation, or removal to the landfill with subsequent detonation.

      Now scatter. It is one thing to bomb (which they are still willing to do today), and it’s another to fix the jambs and restore the destroyed. True, if they pay well, then perhaps they will.

    Yes, do not care what anyone has experience. Each such ammunition is an unknown. It can be cleared by a sapper who has just begun his activity, and he who has already cleared thousands can be blown up. Good luck to Chinese sappers in clearing munitions that have been lying in the ground for almost 80 years

    In our city, back in the early 60s, when a house was being renovated, the owner discovered a hole going into the ground. The sappers arrived. clearance lasted about 3 days. Around residential buildings - they could not be liquidated on the spot, but for a long time they could not get this bomb out of the ground. Rusted. And this is 20 years after the war. And then after almost 80. And the buildings around are by no means single-story

    Submit a bill to the Duma so that the ammunition will be cleared by those who used it. And let all the German ammunition found in our country would be cleared by German experts.
    And those that are found in other countries that we liberated would mine ours. In Ukraine, Hungary, Romania, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany .... And what, everyone so everyone ...
