Broken Arrow: How the U.S. Navy Lost a Nuclear Bomb

From Sunday Morning, 9:43 am on 1 December 2019

On December 5, 1965, Douglas Webster strapped himself into an A-4 Skyhawk bomber -- complete with a live B43 one-megaton thermonuclear bomb -- and promptly rolled off the back of the giant American aircraft carrier Ticonderoga and into the South China sea. And then the cover-up mission began. Author Jim Winchester's new book tells the story of carrier aviation's only 'broken arrow.'
