    The day America dropped the A Bomb on Canada

    I had no idea this happened until today 8/21/2019

    So read this unbelievable story and learn a new thing.

    1950 – The Rivière-du-Loup IncidentMain article: 1950 Rivière-du-Loup B-50 nuclear weapon loss incident
    Goose Air Base was the site of the first US nuclear weapons in Canada, when in 1950 the United States Air Force Strategic Air Command stationed 11 model 1561 Fat Man atomic bombs at the base in the summer, and flew them out in December.[12] While returning to Davis–Monthan Air Force Base with one of the bombs on board, a USAF B-50 heavy bomber encountered engine trouble, had to drop, and conventionally detonate, the bomb over the St. Lawrence, contaminating the river with uranium-238.

    It was a failure because, they still got Pierre et Justine Trudeau. We should try another one.

    I've been there. As well as the one at Thule. My EMO (Electronics Material Officer) a Mustang Ensign. Was asked to leave the Goose Bay O' club. We'd only been underway for maybe 10 days. It were a good trip.
