Dummy Warhead Falls Through Roof
The mid-American city of Tulsa, OK, came under surprise attack
Thursday night, after a 22-pound dummy bomb dropped from an Air
National Guard aircraft.
No one was hurt when the bomb fell into the apartment of Jeremy
Isbell and his wife, according to The Tulsa World. The couple
wasn't home when the bomb fell... but the errant munition took out
their electricity, and part of their bathroom wall.
Isbell ran outside to alert nearby electric company workers, who
were at the complex to determine the cause of a power outage.
Investigators estimate the bomb fell onto the apartment at about
600 mph, from a fighter en route to Smokey Hill Gunnery Range in
Salinas, KS. The jet was heading to the range on a routine training
mission, according to the Oklahoma ANG's 138th Fighter Wing.
The pilot thought he had dropped the BDU-33 bomb over the
training range, the statement read... but instead, it fell shortly
after takeoff from Tulsa.
"We do not take off out of Tulsa with live bombs," Maj. Gen. Bud
Wyatt told KOCO-5. "We don't take off out of Tulsa with live
rockets or live missiles."
A number of federal agencies are investigating the matter,
including the NTSB, FBI, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and
