Broken Arrow: Goldsboro, NC


On Tuesday, 24 January 1961, at about 12:30 a.m., two hydrogen bombs fell to earth near the tiny farming village of Faro, NC. Obviously, neither bomb yielded its awful potential, or the world would today be mourning an infamous catastrophe. An on-going environmental concern centers on the portion or portions of one bomb still buried, sunk in a boggy farm field.
