Silly sods, I wonder if there is a reward if I find it in the garden at first light ?

"Even if the practice bomb survived the fall, we would stress it is highly unlikely to represent a significant danger to the public" unless it fugging hit you !

"A spokesman for RAF Lossiemouth said anyone who found it should contact the police" who will do exactly what should they turn up....

Do you think the pilot said "weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, boom!!" ;)

Surely there is actually no HE in them? Hence being blue. Thus why call EOD or worry about touching it?

Just put the fcuker on the mantlepiece.

Totally inconsequential but my Gran got blown out of her bed by the Luftwaffe....she maintained, until she died, that Adolf had her on his list 'cos she worked in munitions.

As this latest incident happened in Scotland, (I presume), let me tell crab air.....the old lady died in 1982....so leave her alone!

eBay? Someone will probably be taking it down to the scrap metal merchants and making some money out of it more likely.

i always though this kind of thing was fairly common dont they have a form that gets filled out post flight for thing that have fallen off, i have heard of a couple of instances where the pilot has mistakenly hit the jetison stores button, one was navy one raf. although it could have been bs.

Really? Them things are bloody dangerous, the flash/smoke composition within it is designed to give indication of functioning at the desired target. This is observed from a distance so the explosive would be sufficient to maim if not kill.

Fecking tossbag press and/or the RAF have given the public false reasurrance. I wish they would get into the habit of saying all munitions should be considered dangerous and not touched.

my worry is due to defence cuts will the bean counters risk letting them have another to play with ever again.
