WW2 British bomb unearthed on the flight path at Frankfurt Intl Airport, and safely detonated

he remnant of World War II was found by a crew working on the flight path at Frankfurt Airport, and authorities immediately took safety precautions as the unexploded ordinance had a blast radius of 300 meters (or roughly 984 ft.).

When the bomb was eventually detonated (an earlier attempt to diffuse the bomb failed), it left a 20-meter-wide crater. Not surprisingly, given the bomb’s proximity (and now the crater’s proximity) to the A3 outside of Offenbach, traffic has been diverted and severe congestion has followed.
