I did read this material thoroughly and personally I do believe it. The story comes from Norio Hayakawa, the known ufologist and one of the characters mentioned quite enough by Branton in his Dulce Wars. Norio is my friend on facebook where he writes often about ufos, Dulce and other subjects. Whoever has enough knowledge about ufo phenomena and especially Dulce story, is very familiar with Norio and his work.

He refers to a material (including the title) that was the result of a FOIA document published on Los Angeles Times in 1986. When I read it, it did literally freeze my blood in the veins. We really know so little and have no clue on how many times experiments gone wrong or accidents could have wiped us out or caused extermination to an unimaginable number. I did check ATS for a similar thread and couldn't find none. I hope mine is not redundant.


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Newly released government documents reveal that a 42,000-pound hydrogen bomb, one of the most powerful ever made, accidentally fell from a bomber near Albuquerque 29 years ago, a newspaper said today.

Non-nuclear explosives, which are used to trigger armed nuclear devices, detonated in the unarmed Mark 17 bomb when it hit the ground 4 1/2 miles south of Kirtland Air Force Base's control tower, the Albuquerque Journal reported.

The newspaper said it obtained the documents through the Freedom of Information Act.

No one was injured when the bomb hit an uninhabited area owned by the University of New Mexico, creating a crater about 12 feet deep and 25 feet in diameter, the newspaper said.

The documents said minor radioactive contamination was detected in the crater.

"It is possibly the most powerful bomb we ever made," said Stan Norris, a research associate with the Natural Resources Defense Council and a specialist on nuclear weapons.

The government documents did not show the exact explosive yield of the bomb, but Norris said most researchers believe that it was more than 10 megatons. A megaton is the equivalent of 1 million tons, or 1,000 kilotons, of TNT.

The following video is made by Norio on the very same subject.

You would be shocked at how many such accidents have happened..there are still to this day a missing bomb or 2 out there.

Not to mention one B-36 that crashed in the complete opposite direction, hundreds of miles away from where it was seen when the crew bailed out. It supposedly didn't have a core with the bomb, but they went to great lengths to get to the wreckage.

Yeah. It was heading out towards the Pacific when they bailed out, and ended up slamming into the mountain.

that is the type of 'accident' they are mindful of , or someone's not so smart secret plan to 'summon' higher authorities from elsewhere , or maybe the local version of aliens
lets not forget "we" are being monitored 24.7

I do believe a pilot stayed with the plane..if I remember right a body was recovered..brave soul. I think the core was dropped in the drink as the birdcage was recovered from the wreck on one of the expiditions.
The world is very lucky no disasters thus far.
I guess i should throw up a link

The scary one is the one lost in a Savanna swamp never to seen again.
The Feds bought a permanent easement to prevent anyone from accidentally digging up the bomb.

But in all we have lost 8 nukes.
8 missing nukes

They supposedly launched without the core on a training flight to Alaska and back. They started losing engines on the return flight so all but the weapons officer jumped. He was a private pilot, or was working on his private license. They dropped the bomb or bombs I don't remember which, when they started losing power.

I know one hit the ground..can't remember the particulars but only the last failsafe was not triggered..that may of been a hydrogen device.

That was North Carolina. I think it was out of a B-58.

STRAY #6: The Incident in Japan

December 5, 1965. An A-4E Skyhawk attack aircraft carrying a 1-megaton thermonuclear weapon (hydrogen bomb) rolled off the deck of the U.S.S. Ticonderoga and fell into the Pacific Ocean.


Priceless.

I wonder how many simular accidents on the Soviet end?

None. Soviet Russia didn't have accidents.

It would be tough for that to have been a "near doomsday", considering that the Mk17 used automated in-flight pit insertion. Looks like a demented pin setter from a bowling alley.

Without it, you got a big expensive weight.

Of course, a doco wouldn't be watched as much if you said something like "A Big Loss of Taxpayer Dollars Near Albuquerque".

So what would the blast radius have been?

I'm not so sure of the details given...It says that it landed four and a half miles South of Kirtland's control tower, on land owned by UNM, and while UNM does own a bit of land SouthEast of Kirtland, it only extends out to just shy of two miles South of Kirtland...

I also had a look around on Google Maps, and there's no obvious signs of any crater, though, given the time that's passed and the relatively small size of the supposed crater, that's not entirely unexpected.

A 10.4 megaton bomb would have thermal radiation effects out to almost 20 miles.
