Un gruppo di escursionisti trova sul Mount Ballyhoo, un residuato bellico da 120 mm. Sul posto, giungono i genieri che distruggono l’ordigno.
During the war, hundreds of soldiers were stationed atop Mount Ballyhoo, one of the tallest peaks in Unalaska.
Last week, a local hiker found an explosive reminder of that wartime past, tucked away in the tundra at the base of the mountain.
“The Air Force came out and we blew it up,” City Investigator Chris Honan said.
Honan hosted the Explosive Ordnance Disposal team that flew in from Anchorage to deal with the shell.
