Firefighters are looking, police are looking. US military "lost" container with grenades

47
A strange incident occurred in the United States on May 1. Information about him was spread by the Western media only today. According to the message Sky News, when transporting ammunition between two test ranges of the US Army in North Dakota, a container with grenades was “lost”. Presumably, the container was poorly secured and fell from the Humvee armored vehicle.


Initially, it was decided not to report on the disappearance of ammunition in the media. The servicemen tried to find a container on their own. The search operation involved at least 100 troops from the Minot airbase in an area of ​​about 7 km.

Firefighters are looking, police are looking. US military "lost" container with grenades


It is noteworthy that the military also visited the Indians living in one of the local reservations, explaining that if they found grenades, they should be given to the officers.

The search continued for several days, but they were not crowned with success. After that, it was decided to disclose information about the loss. The population of North Dakota was informed about the loss of a container with grenades. The command of the US Air Force, which owned the ammunition being transported, announced a remuneration of 5 thousand dollars for information about where the container is currently located.

The local sheriff said that "while the container is closed, the grenades are not dangerous."

The commander of the unit, which “lost” (although a slightly different term may be used in this context ...) grenades, stated that he “prays that ammunition will not cause anyone any harm if they are accidentally discovered.”

            You can find him (bom) better, but vigorous bongs are lying around dozens hi
            March 10, 1956 over the Mediterranean Sea disappeared bomber B-47, flying out of Florida. On board the aircraft were two nuclear bombs. No traces of the aircraft and nuclear weapons have been found so far; the official version looks like "lost at sea off the coast of Algeria."

            On July 28, 1957, a C-124 transport plane drove three equipped nuclear bombs and a plutonium charge from another state to Delaware to Europe. Over the Atlantic off the coast of New Jersey, the plane began to lose power, two of the four engines stalled. The crew dropped two of three bombs into the ocean about a hundred miles from Atlantic City.

            On February 5, 1958, near the Savannah (coast of Georgia), an F-86 fighter collided with a B-47 strategic bomber. The fighter crashed, and the damaged B-47 stayed in the air and returned to base. True, for this, it was necessary to drop the Mk.15 thermonuclear bomb into the Atlantic (power output when undermining about 1,7 megatons). There she still lies, covered with silt - the search came to nothing lead.

            On December 5, 1965, near Okinawa, an aircraft carrier Tikonderoga, due to heavy rolling, slid into the water an unsecured A-4 Skyhawk attack aircraft with a tactical nuclear bomb and sank at a depth of about 4900 meters. The Pentagon did not recognize this episode until 1989.

    sabakina,
    The forty-foot container on Hammer cannot be secured, from the word at all. Any radioactive waste, as well as nuclear weapons or fissile materials, is easily detected by non-destructive testing methods. By the way, the usual I / O is also detected.

    Sincerely.
