An “Oops” of Nuclear Scale!
Was strolling around the news for a bit, when I came across this piece of mind blowing news:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A U.S. bomber mistakenly flew with nuclear warheads over the United States last week, but the Air Force on Wednesday said the flight was not a threat to public safety.
“Would be a fun time for a WMD joke.”
Still though, how can you mistakenly load and fly around with nuclear weapons? Aren’t there many procedures that prevent this kind of thing from happening? One would think you can’t just load nukes on a war plane by accident, right? I mean, it’s not like they went “Instead of the normal missiles from that rack, I accidentally have gotten them from a different rack. They all look the freaking same to me!”, right?
It boggles the mind!
