Suwanee Springs (WTFF) – The United States Air Force “inadvertently” dropped three “non-explosive” training munitions on Florida after their A-10C Thunderbolt II hit a bird.
In a press release, 23d Wing Public Affairs say the accidental bomb droppings happened on July 1 around 1:15 pm.
The plane was assigned to the 23d Fighter Group stationed at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia.
As far as where the bombs landed, the report states, “The exact location is unknown but the suspected area is located 54 miles southwest of Moody Air Force Base in the general vicinity of 2 kilometers west of Highway 129 near Suwannee Springs.”
The BDU-33s each weigh 25 pounds and are used to simulate the M1a-82 500-pound bomb. They’re about 22 inches long, and are equipped with a small pyrotechnic charge.
Floridians have been warned to stay away from the bombs.
Nobody died or got hurt, except the bird.
