Day 328: More broken arrows

Aboard U.S.S. Petrel off the coast of Spain, 1966; after successful recovery of the H-Bomb

Back on Day 168 I posted about the Broken Arrow (when a nuclear bomb accidentally falls out of plane). This week in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists I read about the Palomares accident of 1966, which then lead to the re-discovery of the 1968 Thule accident.
