The two Marine planes had to abandon the bombs in the national park containing the natural wonder because they were running out of fuel and could not land with the amount of ordinance on board, the Navy said. The two Marine aircraft were launched from a Navy ship, the USS Bonhomme Richard.
Two of the projectiles were explosive bombs that were disarmed before they were dropped. They did not explode, the Navy said.
The other two were inert, or non-explosive bombs, the Navy said.
How about just fill up the jets with sufficient amounts of fuel next time?
