They're practising before taking off and nuking the entire site from orbit.

Caption from the linked article (my bold);
The scene of the controlled explosion of a WWII 250kg Bomb at Fassett Road West London which has left a massive crate, shattered windows and damage to buildings and a nearby vehicle

It might just be me but I can't see any smashed windows in that picture.

As for the 'mother of all craters', it looks like a sandpit.

Just thank you lucky stars it wasn't a septic EOD outfit, the whole neighbourhood would have been totalled, anyhow, well done lads, in true British tradition, another job that has been done for many many decades, with up dates in techknowledgy implemented as soon as they emerge, a clusterfuck of monumental proportions, I envisage a interview, sans coffee biscuits, hats off, belts off and have words with the paymaster.

Never mind the damage, why isn't that officer gripping that lot for standing there with their arms folded like primary school girls in an assembly?

In my day, rant, splutter, rave...

That's a Typical RM/RN pose. Anyway, I still blame the Germans.

A quick question for the experts: What will have happened to the tail unit on the bomb? Lost on impact, corroded?
