    Did they ever find the H-Bomb that they lost outside Havannah, Georgia in '58, think it was 15 Mk 0? Didn't they also accidentally drop 4 in spain when two machines collided, two had their parachutes opened, but two didn't and they fell to earth in high speed but malfunctioned! :shock: :oops:

    As far as I know (from a recent documentary that I saw) the bomb off the coast of Georgia is still there, though there is an ex-Air Force(?) guy looking for it with a small group he put together of vets, active service and civis.

    The 4 nukes from the mid-air over Spain where all recovered from both land and the Med. Some sooner then others and I believe the USAF also had to remove several tons of prime Iberian soil due to contamination.

    That's the little I "know". Hope it helps.
