    How many N-bomb dropped at Nagasaki?

    This was before my time, and I did read once that 2 N-bombs were dropped at Nagasaki because of the terrain. A lot of those killed were kidnapped Korean forced laborers.

    If the Russian indeed captured the 2nd bomb, perhaps that may explain why USSR could quickly copy the WW2 technology, but took them a long time to move forward.

    What are the potential causes of the crash?
    - Pilots became disoriented.
    - Plane could not survive weather.
    - Instrumentation failed, possibly pitot tube.
    NGC coulda, shoulda, woulda help Airbus and makes a buck.
    NGC/Airbus team almost beat BA on air transport. Shouldn't we know the weaknesses of our teammate? Previously another Airbus crashes into Atlantic because of frozen pitot tube.

    If we draw a small circle around the potential crash site, one billion people live inside this circle, together with 1000 radars. Still, nobody spotted the crash, and nobody can locate debris. Aliens must have taken these 2 planes.
