During July the joint u.s.-Australian military exercises with Harrier attack planes were dropped 4 bombs right on the great barrier reef.
According to military, aircraft pilots were forced to do it, because they were ordered to return to the aircraft carrier, from where they departed, without combat assignment for dumping bombs at the agreed point. As to sit on the deck of the ship with arms to Scotland prohibited, they had to reset the dangerous cargo in ocean.
Bomb fuses were removed, Therefore, there were no explosions. Thus, the pilots managed to get rid of the bombs without causing environmental damage Wednesday. However, two of the four bombs were packed full of explosives (they pose a threat), and the other two cement.
So in mid-August, began the operation on their search and neutralization.
Australian Minesweeper Gascoyne found bombs, lying at a depth of 60-70 m at a short distance from the great barrier reef, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Then it was decided to raise and defuse two bombs with explosive, and the other two on the bottom left, what the administration has agreed to reserve BBR, as reported by some Australian media.
The operation to raise the deadly cargo was carried out recently and now the bombs are no longer any threat to the reef, or for other people.
So if you are thinking to go on a tour of Australia with a view to fish in the waters of BBR, you can do so without fear for their lives.
