Re: Burning Box Car


I sent this to Dan a few moments ago.


Dan, thanks for your comments.


I was working at the Naval Depot in Hawthorne (NADHAW) at the time, When they brought back some of the unexploded bombs we done a lot of testing including sawing bombs in half to check if there were too many voids in the explosive castings.  Without their fuses the bombs are actually really safe. They actually have a very high cook off temp so we knew the box cars were burning quite a lot before the bombs went off.
