    Yes I posted about this before, but I thought I would post it again since I was there and had pics of the site.

    A short man, he jumped to pull himself up to get a look at where he thought the locking pin should be. Unfortunately, he evidently chose the emergency bomb-release mechanism for his handhold. The weapon dropped from its shackle and rested momentarily on the closed bomb-bay doors with Captain Kulka splayed across it in the manner of Slim Pickens in Dr. Strangelove. Kulka grabbed at a bag that had providentially been stored in the bomb bay, while the more-than-three-ton bomb broke open the bomb-bay doors and fell earthward. The bag Kulka was holding came loose, and he found himself sliding after the bomb without his parachute. He managed to grab something—he wasn’t sure what—and haul himself to safety. Moments later the plane was rocked by the shock wave of the blast when the bomb hit the ground.
    This is pretty much the definition of an "Oh ****!" moment.

    Still, it's a hell of a story for parties: "So there I am, lying on top of an unsecured atomic weapon..."

    I had thought this was the only time a nuclear bomb had been dropped in america, but I have found two other occasion. Two planes collide near Seymour Johnson AFB. Two nuke were jettisoned. One landed safe using a parachute. The other buried itself in the ground but didn't explode. One report I saw said it reached close to the speed of sound and went 150ft into the ground. ( I don't think that part is true because gravity is not strong enough to make an object go that fast.) Another report said it was 50ft in the ground. It is still there because the ground was so soft the AF couldn't dig it out.

    The other incident was just before the Mars Bluff incident. Two planes collide over Savanna Ga. One crashed into the Atlantic with it's nukes onboard.

    It was policy to have a certain number of nukes in the air and ready to drop, incase the Russians attacked us. That caused a number of "Broken Arrows", milatary code for a lost nuke. I also read that the only ones that were reported was the ones they had to report.
