thats a old pic on the net. probably a dummy bomb. if you look at it in front of the bomb. see the scrapes? the lift toppled forward due to bad loading and then rolled backwards onto the ramp.

So, Phil, where was the photo taken? Had a kid drive the tines of a F/L into a box of FMU-56 fuses. The big stuff doesn't scare me as much as the little stuff. During Just Cause (after almost three days without sleep) I saw a PDF holding one of my guys at gunpiont. Just before I put my finger on the trigger I shook my head and he was gone. I was hallucinating. Didn't tell anyone about this for years. Eddie

Possibly, but the orange label indicates some type of explosive content; can't make it out. Generally, training munitions have blue markings or are painted entirely blue. With the limited view the pix provides I would guess that is Okinawa or somewher in the pacific. Phil? Eddie

I've had a gun put to my head in the middle of nowhere Maine, hung 30 feet off a rope of an oil tanker 12 miles off shore during a snow squall and 20-foot swells, went to a couple anthrax sites, blew chunks when a dead body from a traffic accident fell out of the cab of a truck on top of me while securing an airblower to rid the fumes during a highway truck rollover, had a hazwaste drum of gasoline explode 20 feet away (scarred for life on that one), that's all for now...there's more, but my meatloaf dinner is starting to not look so good. Had a few. But that bomb up there would have made me crap my pants.

I wish I had some info on the photo but I ran across it surfing. I just thought this was a proper place to share it.
