The explosives were deemed safe enough to move short distances, but not safe enough to make the long haul back to Vandenberg. Police bomb experts concluded the devices needed to be deactivated somewhere else; the surrounding neighborhood was too densely populated and either persons or property could be damaged. Pershing Park provided the necessary space — a radius of 1,000 feet — to detonate the explosives safely.
Durante la pulizia di un capannone situato in Via Ladera (Distretto di Westside), gli eredi dell’ex proprietario ormai deceduto (un reduce), trovano due ordigni bellici inesplosi completi di carica esplosiva e altri residuati bellici. Sul posto giungono gli artificieri appartenenti al Bomb Squad della base aerea di Vandenberg. I tecnici rimuovono le bombe e le distruggono al Pershing Park.
