Getting Bombed

|

Several people swimming at Kanopolis Lake in Kansas got a bit of a surprise when a B-52 bomber dropped nine bombs on the lake. Lt. Col. Jeff Jordan, commander of the Smoky Hill National Guard Range, told the Associated Press that the plane dropped the bombs by mistake while on a training mission. Jordan insisted that the bombs did not pose a threat to the public because they were filled with cement, not explosives.
