Is this the first "Broken arrow" incident? I watched a show the other day about a bomber that went down in BC carrying one of the first nuclear bombs. After it went down the US army or air force went in covertly and destroyed the wreckage with TNT which pretty much tore the thing up beyond recognition. No one knows what happened to the nuke that was on board, but there was one. I'm not sure if these are the same planes, it was USAF Bomber 075 though that went down with a nuke on board.

always fun finding old things like plane crashes, like the water bomber that went down on that small lake by lake cowichan on the island. went to that a few years back. just molten metal and scrap left of that one.

flew over the B-25 above widgeon today and had a better look at what the hike up to it from the lake would be like. LOTS of snow up up there still, the wreck is at approx 5000ft and all I could see from the air is under a foot of propeler blad sticking out and a peice of metal beside it otherwise nothing. considering the pics ive seen online of the wreckages theres alot of snow on it *L*.

someday it would be a cool trip but no way I would do it without getting flown into the lake first,
