I lived waaay too close to the location. Now I live close to the ditch.
At least while in Goldsboro, if it were to somehow detonate, I would never have known.

This story is scary or the fact that there have been 31 other incidents.

I was born on SJAFB. My dad was stationed there and went to the crash site to recover body parts. He said they werent given much info. Just recover body parts.

My Uncle was part of the group that searched for the Savannah wreckage as he was EOD at the time and stationed at Charleston. I grew up near Goldsboro and we here about it every year on the anniversary.

That is some odd muddy swamp that part of it fell into. The never could get to the bottom. Not much marking the site, but a fence and private property.

As a kid, used to watch B-52s out of SJ do low level training flights. Impressive when they would come over about 1000 feet.

Even got to climb in one on a scout tour.

It's scary to know how many "broken arrows" there were.

This part is BS; all of this would have had to be done before the bomb fell out. The bomb can't arm itself.

"The military studied the bombs and learned that six of seven steps to blow up one of them had engaged, according to The Register. Only one trigger stopped a blast — that switch was set to "ARM" yet somehow failed to detonate the bomb."
