7 Times The US Government Lost Nuclear Weapons That Still Haven’t Been Found

By Rachel Blevins

While it may seem absurd to consider of a supervision losing nuclear weapons opposite the world, the law is that the United States supervision has an endless story of losing its many lethal weapons, and some of them have been blank for scarcely 70 years.

Here are 7 times the U.S. supervision lost nuclear weapons that still have not been found:

1. Feb 1950 – The first famous nuclear arms detriment occurred when an American B-36 bomber was drifting from Alaska to Texas, and it lost energy in 3 engines. Reports claimed that when the aircraft started losing altitude, the organisation began trying to abate its bucket by releasing a 30-kiloton Mark 4 (Fat Man) nuclear bomb, into the Pacific Ocean.

While the bomb’s uranium components were lost and have nonetheless to be recovered, one diver pronounced he believes he found the ruins of the nuclear explosve off the seashore of British Columbia in Nov 2016.


2. Mar 1956 – A B-47 Stratojet was of the U.S. Air Force was drifting from the MacDill Air Force Base in Florida to an abroad base, carrying two nuclear arms cores. While the aircraft finished its first air-to-air refueling, it never reached its second tanker and is reputed to have crashed.

As Aerospace Web reported, experts trust the craft and its essence are somewhere in the Mediterranean Sea, but “no snippet of the plane, its crew, or its nuclear cargo was ever found despite an endless search.”

3. Jul 1957 – The next occurrence occurred when a U.S. Air Force C-124 aircraft left the Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, to ride 3 nuclear bombs over the Atlantic Ocean. When the aircraft lost power, the organisation jettisoned two of the nuclear bombs.

The bombs have never been found, and it is reputed that they are still located somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean, around 100 miles from Atlantic City. The Asbury Park Press reported that when the first explosve was pushed overboard at an altitude of 2,500 feet, “there was no manifest blast as the explosve hit the water and it fast vanished from sight. The second explosve was jettisoned in the same manner. Again, there was no understandable eruption of the high bomb elements.” 

4. Feb 1958 – When a USAF B-47 bomber collided with a USAF F-86 Sabra midair during a unnatural fight goal from the Homestead Air Force bottom in Florida, the commander of the F-86 was ejected, and the commander of the B-47 attempted to land at the Hunter Air Force Base in Georgia.

After mixed catastrophic alighting attempts, the B-47 jettisoned the Mark 15 Mod 0 nuclear bomb it was carrying, which landed somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean nearby Tybee Island, Georgia. According to Aerospace Web, the initial hunt for the weapons lasted for 9 weeks, and then “another catastrophic hunt was mounted in 2001, and reports of deviation rescued reduction than a mile from seaside led to conjecture of the bomb’s find in 2004,” but the bombs have nonetheless to be found.

5. Jan 1961 – The next “broken arrow” occurrence occurred when a B-52 carrying two 24-megaton nuclear bombs crashed after holding off from an airbase in Goldsboro, North Carolina. A constructional fire caused the craft to crash, killing 3 of its eight crewmembers and releasing the two weapons.

One of those weapons struck the belligerent and then sank in muddy farmland, and while the Air Force recovered its plutonium, many of the thermonuclear theatre —including rarely enriched uranium that done up the bomb’s core—was never found. Reports claimed that the U.S. Air Force responded by shopping a permanent easement that gave the supervision permission to puncture on the land.

6. Dec 1965 – An A-4E Skyhawk attack craft carrying a B-43 thermonuclear bomb sank into the Pacific Ocean after it rolled off of the USS Ticonderoga while returning to a naval bottom in Yokosuka, Japan, after a deployment to Vietnam.

The plane, the pilot, and the arms were lost in some-more than 16,000 feet of water, and have never been recovered. It was not until 1989 that U.S. officials finally certified the collision took place, 70 miles from Okinawa. The Los Angeles Times remarkable that this occurrence supposing “evidence that U.S. warplanes handling off Vietnam were loaded with nuclear bombs and that U.S. warships carried atomic weapons into Japanese ports in defilement of Japanese policy.”

7. May 1968 – The attack submarine USS Scorpion was returning to its bottom in Norfolk, Virginia after a three-month deployment, when it mysteriously sank in the Atlantic Ocean, about 500 miles southwest of the Azores Islands. The submarine, 99 crewmembers and the one nuclear reactor and two nuclear-tipped torpedoes that were onboard, were all lost, and have nonetheless to be recovered.

While questions sojourn about what led up to the comfortless loss, Aerospace Web reported that one of the many distinguished theories is that “a battery within one of the submarine’s torpedoes overheated and ignited. The successive fire caused a warhead eruption and bloody open the shoot loading induce at the top of the brazen compartment,” which led to a flood of water to the induce that sent the Scorpion over 10,000 feet into the ocean.
