2 ton bomb found in Augsburg!
A 2 ton bomb was found on x-mas and 50.000 people had to be evacuated.

It was a british 4000lb from WWII, or what did you think? Tongue

Yeah, saw the thread title and thought, "It's a Cookie."

Big bastards, they were -- used to break water mains, and hamper firefighting.

RE: 2 ton bomb found in Augsburg!
This bomb would have been dropped the night of 25-26 February 1944. The raid was a part of Big Week.

Pathfinder mosquitos, possibly from 617 Sqn RAF, led the raid in. If 617, there's a great possibility Leonard Cheshire VC was flying below the 500+ bombers in his special P51, giving directions to the force.

Astoundingly brave individual. (side note. Cheshire was aboard Bockscar on the Nagasaki mission as an observer.)

I'd probably have to go to the RAF site to get the details.

That would be the raid, and a lancaster would have dropped that bomb. I think they lost 20 + aeroplanes that night.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

I think that those are very unfortunate people, if true.

However, I suspect that the location was evacuated ... not the people.

Yeah, that's right, blame my dad.

He already feels bad enough for killing Glenn Miller.

Its only really uxb's that use picric acid primary charges attached to the fuse gaine that remain dangerous after such a long period due to friction sensitive compounds forming in reaction with the metal and if the main charge is ammonium nitrate based it will be so degraded its unlikely to detonate.
