Reston, Va. is probably not interested in the claim of being the only US city that the US government ever acknowledged to be a simulated target for nuclear destruction with a real bomb. The story is murky with age and political evasiveness but in Feb 1958 a US bomber had little Reston in it's sights and dropped an H Bomb. According to "official" reports bomber was carrying a real 7,000 H bomb and somehow collided with a US fighter plane which was involved in the (cluster phuck ?) operation shortly after the simulated nuclear destruction of Virginia. The bomber was in trouble with a damaged wing and was ordered to jettison the 7,000 pound nuclear device before attempting a landing. The bomber ended up (according to "official" reports) dropping a real H Bomb somewhere near Tybee Island, S.C. but the Military couldn't find it. The Russians tested their first H bomb 3 years later. Is it possible that the US Bomber was really damaged by the Russians and the bomb was recovered by a Russian Sub that monitored the whole scenario? It seems strange to me that the US government has given up looking for the 7,000 lb bomb even after modern technology located a Civil War submarine which, strangely enough, is similar to the size of the lost H bomb.
