My dad is a WWII pilot too, he's 82 and failing also. I found a neat Christmas present for him here.

Check it out

The plutonium bomb was the only weapon that was tested.

Thank you for the *ping; I hadn't heard this sad news.

Haven't seen any articles yet today, the 61st Anniversary of Nagasaki, so I thought I'd bump this.

Happy Nagasaki Day, y'all! ;>)

Little Boy was 12.5-15 kilotons. Trinity and Fat Man were around 20-22 kilotons.

I hate AP. Bockscar dropped "Fat Man" on Nagasaki. "Little Boy" was the Hiroshima bomb.

I wondered if anyone was going to point out their mistake. Good looking out.
