Wasn’t lost…just a ‘for later’! :slight_smile: I think there are still 4-5 out there somewhere…

This one was supposedly a dummy that had had it’s fissionable material removed before it was lost, but one has to wonder whether that’s true or not. But of all the many things that a government might accidentally misplace, nuclear bombs don’t seem like they should be on the list. :shrug:
