Bombs away

Whanganui Chronicle - - Nation -

The Air Force has tested 14 bombs, each weigh­ing 227kg, at its weapons range in north­west Auck­land. It says the op­er­a­tion at the Kaipara range over the past week has been to en­sure staff re­main pro­fi­cient in anti-sur­face and anti-sub­ma­rine war­fare. The 14 bombs were dropped from a P-3K2 Orion air­craft. The train­ing also helped the ex­plo­sive ord­nance per­son­nel, who were there to ex­plode any bombs that did not det­o­nate.
