In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.
Tweetable Logline: Plane crashes, lost nukes and a military cover up- a filmmaker unpacks the secret history of how his granddad nearly blew-up the east coast.
About the film: It’s true, my grandfather nearly blew-up the eastern seaboard. He was a career bomber pilot who re-enlisted after WW II. Returning from a top-secret Strategic Air Command mission in January 1964, the B-52 he was flying tore apart in mid-air due to heavy winds. Two thermonuclear bombs were on board, that combined were over 1000 times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. But what is really crazy is that this sort of thing happened all the time, and the Air Force could have likely prevented it- total “Dr. Strangelove” sort of stuff (my grandfather playing Slim Pickens’ role).
Production Status: Aproximately 50% through production and looking for funding.
