They were dropped in a channel that is something like 60 feet deep, not on the reef. Two of the weapons were inert, they leave a puff of dust or
smoke when they hit. The other two were unarmed, and the chances of them exploding are remote. The Navy is working on plans to recover them, if they
The aircraft couldn't drop them on the range for whatever reason, and you can't land with bombs hanging on the wings (not in a Harrier, or on a
ship). They had to get rid of them, or fly the planes until they ran out of fuel, or just crashed them. There is no danger to the reef where they
are, and no damage was done. I'll guarantee that if you dig hard enough you'll find the Australian military has dropped ordnance in the region as
well, for whatever reason.
