Interview with Parker Peedin, co-pilot and survivor of a B-52 accident that was part of a project called Chrome Dome where planes circled the US 24 hours a day with live nuclear weapons to be prepared to deliver in case of an attack by the Soviet Union. No nuclear explosions here, just the story of survival.
Event known as a Broken Arrow occurred on January 13, 1964. Known as the 1964 Savage Mountain B-52 crash, the Stratofortress B-52D's vertical stabilizer broke off in a winter storm. The plane was carrying two Mark 53 nuclear weapons. The plane crashed near Barton, Maryland.
