“We’d like to congratulate Christina and Jason for finding the Mudspike Logo Bomb hidden prize. We’ll make sure they get their free t-shirt plus free lifetime iodine supply.” @BeachAV8R
While it’s true that US air force lost a bomb in the state of Georgia, that the amatuer divers suddenly found the bomb is fake. While they [goverment] have a pretty good idea of were the bomb went, it’s believed that the bomb buried deep down into the mud from the fall. You can read all about it here, even about the article linked in OP.
Also, pic of the diver beside the “bomb”. The “bomb” does not even resemble a Mark-15
It does smell like a funky story, e.g:
“When I saw the inscription saying that it was a Mk-15 nuclear bomb, I totally freaked out.”
Is ordnance actually marked like that?
EDIT: Yep, fake - http://www.snopes.com/media/notnews/warhead.asp
Aww. And I wanted a REAL nuclear bomb to be found!
I cannot imagine the USAF “giving up” on a search for an unexploded bomb that was left on/near US soil. Should have smelled this one a mile away.
I think they should put a picture of it on the back of milk cartons.
