(Plane loses a bomb)…It was described as an inert bomb, which means it cannot explode.
Naval Air Facility El Centro says a training air craft lost the bomb this week somewhere West of Imperial Valley College, from Dogwood Road to the West, Huston Road to the North, Aten Road to the South and Cooley Road to the East. NAF says the bomb poses a minimal safety hazard to the public. It contains a small charge that disperses smoke during training. If the public spots it, they should report the find to the Navy Base.
