On February 5, 1958, during a practice exercise, a US Air Force F-86 fighter plane collided with a B-47 bomber over the Atlantic Ocean near Tybee Island, Georgia. To protect the crew of the B-47, the plane jettisoned the nuclear bomb it was carrying somewhere in Wassaw Sound off the shores of Tybee Island. The 7,600-pound Mark 15 nuclear bomb did not detonate when it hit the water and has never been found. Let me repeat. This nuclear bomb has never been found. It is still out there.
Maybe I'm missing something, but how hard can it be to find a nuclear bomb? Share this post, if you've ever misplaced something important. Bonus points, if it was a nuclear bomb.
